In Our "VIEW"


In support of our fellow nurse, Miss Colorado, we nurses wear more than a stethoscope. We wear the concerns, welfare and well-being of our patients, community and profession. As LA county nurses, we are patients' advocates; we take care of our vulnerable populations, uninsured and underinsured, underserved and private sector patients.
