The Americans with Disabilities Act is 25! Let's celebrate nurses!
This month Exceptional Nurse joins the nation in celebrating
the 25th anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) by President George H.W. Bush on July 26, 1990.
Countless people including nursing students and nurses with disabilities have benefited from passage of the ADA.
Today, we celebrate Danielle, a nurse born missing a limb. Danielle found ways to succeed in nursing school, graduate and land a job as a pediatric nurse.
A video about Danielle (found below) was produced by the Disability and Business Technical Assistance Center-New England ADA Center.
Can you help us celebrate by leaving a comment and sharing this post?
With thanks in advance!!
