LAS VEGAS, Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- This week, registered nurse activists from the state of Nevada and around the country launched a drive to make sure voters in Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Maine, and elsewhere have the information they need to be informed healthcare voters. The Nevada leg of this tour will be coordinated by NNOC Nevada, the state affiliate of the National Nurses Organizing Committee/California Nurses Association, the nation's largest RN union.

The centerpiece of the Nevada drive is a statewide bus tour Monday Oct. 13 through Friday Oct. 17, visiting Sparks, Carson City, Reno, Incline Village, Gardnerville, Lovelock, Elko, Ely, the Shoshone Reservation, Las Vegas, and Henderson.

WHAT: Nevada Nurses Drive for Healthcare Voters -- Las Vegas

WHEN: Friday Oct. 17, 10:30 a.m.

WHERE: East Las Vegas Senior Center, 5700 Missouri Ave.

The tour will feature a unique, wrapped bus -- a striking visual -- that includes the nurses' report cards on the candidates and their healthcare stances. Riding the bus will be local nurses, physicians, patients, healthcare activists, and Donna Smith, a star of the movie SiCKO.

NNOC is also reaching out to voters through a mail piece featuring the healthcare report card that is going out to swing voters across the state, especially unaffiliated women; with a broad phone banking campaign with nurses calling these same voters; and with print advertising.

"As an RN right here in Nevada, what you call voters, I call my patients. My colleagues and I will make sure they have the information they need to make good decisions about the healthcare proposals of the leading presidential candidates," said Michael Collins, an RN in Las Vegas.

"RNs know that patients and voters need specific and independent information about the healthcare records and proposals of politicians. Healthcare is an issue that touches the lives of every single American, and we have seen significant debates in this campaign about its future. We are committed to getting this important information into the hands of every Nevada voter," said Malinda Markowitz, RN, a co-president of NNOC/CNA.

Following the Nevada leg of this tour, NNOC plans to continue the October road show with stops throughout Ohio and Pennsylvania, as well as in Manchester, New Hampshire and Bangor, Maine.

The Nevada Nurses Organizing Committee is the state affiliate of the National Nurses Organizing Committee, which was founded by the California Nurses Association in 2005, and today represents 80,000 RNs in 50 states, making it the largest and fastest-growing association of direct-care RNs in the nation.
