'Heart Teams' of Nurses to Explain to Legislators and Public the Urgent

Bill Guarantees Safe RN-to-Patient Staffing Ratios, Protects Nurse

PHOENIX, Feb. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Registered nurses from throughout Arizona will hold a major rally this Thursday, February 14 in a bid to improve the state's healthcare by passing a key patient safety bill.

The nurse "Heart Teams" will tell legislators: "Don't break our hearts on Valentine's Day."
