All Hands In

Welcome to Advocates for Nurses, a platform founded by Maggie Ortiz, RN, MSN, driven by a deep commitment to justice and due process for nurses. Having served as an Investigator at a Board of Nursing, Maggie witnessed firsthand the alarming lack of due process for nurses facing complaints. Unlike criminal and civil defendants, nurses often find themselves at the mercy of their state Board of Nursing, with no oversight or recourse.

Did you know that anyone can file a complaint against your nursing license, putting your livelihood in jeopardy? State Boards of Nursing operate with unchecked authority, impervious even to judicial orders. This stark reality spurred Maggie to become an unwavering advocate for nurses' rights.

With over 400,000 nurses in Texas alone and five million across the United States, Advocates for Nurses is assembling a diverse team of nursing professionals representing various specialties. Our mission is clear: to educate, advocate, and empower nurses with the legal knowledge necessary to safeguard their careers.

Every nurse deserves due process, and we're here to ensure they receive it.

Join us, whether you're a bedside nurse, a nurse leader, or part of a nursing organization. At Advocates for Nurses, we believe in the power of knowledge and unity. Join our groups, engage in discussions, and let's stand together in solidarity. We are five million strong, and united, we stand! #ISTANDWITHNURSES
