NATIONWIDE - She's done it again. For the eighth straight year,
California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing
Committee Executive Director Rose Ann DeMoro has won national
recognition as one of the "100 Most Powerful People in
DeMoro came in at number 35 on the list, which is dominated
by government officials and corporate executives and is compiled
by Modern Healthcare, a nationally-known Chicago-based
healthcare industry news weekly.
Notably, DeMoro, executive director of the nation's largest
union and professional association of registered nurses,
is one of only 12 people - one of only two women and the
only labor person - to make the list every year the poll
has been taken.
"Those (12) names don't just appear on our annual list. You
can find them in nearly every issue of Modern Healthcare making
news trying to improve healthcare for patients, their
organizations and their constituencies," wrote Modern
Healthcare editor David Burda.
Nearly half a million votes were cast, said Modern
Healthcare. Overall, more than 25,000 people were nominated
for the list.
"We are incredibly proud to see Rose Ann recognized and
honored year after year after year," said CNA/NNOC Co-President
Deborah Burger, RN. "It's a testimonial to her leadership, her
values, and her vision that have guided CNA/NNOC, inspired
nurses and patients across the country, and are helping us build
a powerful, national nurses movement."
