Nurses In Politics: Part 2, Oregon State Representative District 37; Rachel Prusak The Nurses and Hypochondriacs Podcast

    • Medicine

A judge in rural Oregon on Monday tossed out statewide coronavirus restrictions imposed by Democratic Gov. Kate Brown, saying she didn’t seek the Legislature's approval to extend the stay-at-home orders beyond a 28-day limit. Several Oregon opposers of the “Stay At Home Decree” from Governor Kate Brown’s executive actions have decried personal infringements on religious freedoms as well as their ability to earn a living.
Economists have forecasted more than a 2 billion dollar revenue loss due to COVID19 in Oregon. The state unemployment rate has jumped to a record 14.2%. Oregon House Rep. 37 District Rachel Prusak joins us to discuss these issues and how a NURSE is qualified to lead in the political arena. We’ll also discuss the ‘Death With Dignity Act’ which allows terminally ill Oregonians to end their life through the voluntary self administration of lethal medications, expressly prescribed by a physician for that purpose.
Rachel Prusak is an American Democratic politician and nurse practitioner who was elected to the Oregon House of Representatives in 2018. She represents the 37th district, which includes West Linn, Durham, Rivergrove, Tualatin, and Stafford. Prusak graduated from Northeastern University with a BA in nursing and then earned a Masters in nursing from Frontier Nursing University. Before her tenure in office, she was a family nurse practitioner who served elderly homebound patients for over 20 years, specializing in palliative and hospice care. https://rachelforstaterep.com
