Will President-elect Donald Trump support nurses with disabilities?




So much has been said and predicted about a Donald Trump presidency. Can we turn our attention to nurses? And, specifically nurses and nursing students with disabilities? 

Will he stand with all nurses and nursing students? 

Will he support safe staffing ratios and safer handling policies?

Will he encourage employers to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act and reasonable accommodation for nurses with disabilities?

Will he support reasonable accommodation for nursing students with disabilities in higher education?

Will he see the potential in a nurse or nursing student with a disability?

What can we do to bring the issues to the attention of the President-elect?

Please feel free to post a comment below or email me at ExceptionalNurse@aol.com. 

I will update this post as the new administration moves forward.

With thanks,

Donna
