Breaking News:

The Massachusetts Health Policy Commission (HPC) has completed their independent analysis of Question 1 and announced yesterday that the law would cost upwards of $900 million every year - all while having no proven positive impact on the quality of patient care. In fact, the HPC examined California’s experience and concluded, "There was no systematic improvement in patient outcomes post-implementation of ratios."

The public needs to know about the Health Policy Commission findings before they head to the polls.  As nurses, our voices will be the most powerful for voters to hear from now until November. Thank you for your careful consideration and continuing to educate yourself and others on this important issue and we welcome any questions you may have.


Thank you for your commitment to patient safety and thank you for Voting NO on #1 on Nov 6th.  We’re looking forward to maintaining an open, fact-based dialogue about Question 1 leading into November and thank all of you for your careful consideration of what it would mean for you and you colleagues.

    ANA has a more reasonable model.
