We appreciate knowing the PONL's commitment to evidence-based nursing practice and advocacy in nurse-staffing legislation. We regret that the statement was not available prior to the submission of our article. We also understand that PONL is now collaborating with PSNA to refine HB 1033.

PSNA has confirmed that this collaboration also began after the submission of the article. It is exciting to hear that nurse leaders are working to drive this crucial bill forward to approval. We encourage all nurses to join in this effort and make their voices heard.
