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. In our "VIEW" we provide vital services to our clients and to the community and are certainly not "just a nurse." -#notjustanurse
