"Mr. President, thank you so much for allowing me to be here.  I represent a Catholic nursing association; it’s called the NACN-USA.  But it’s also international; it’s called CICIAMS.  So I am blessed to be here and also represent a community hospital in South Jersey that’s considered a hot zone right now in Willingboro, New Jersey."

The National Association of Catholic Nurse, U.S.A. is a member association of Catholic Nurses and other healthcare professionals who uphold the teaching of Jesus Christ and the Magisterium of the Catholic Church in nursing care, research, administration and education. We trace our origin to the first local council of Catholic Nurses founded in Boston, MA in 1909. As a member association of the International Catholic Committee of Nurses and Medico-Social Assistants (CICIAMS), we respond to Pope Pius XI 1935 call at our World Congress in Rome to promote Catholic Associations of Nurses enabling nurses to come together to sustain and fortify each other in their professional and Christian formation. The Holy Father called nurses to struggle against "paganism and materialism which insinuated themselves everywhere in order to cast out Christ" and be "first and foremost, and at any cost, full of the spirit of spirituality, of Christianity, of the Christian supernatural." His Holiness stated, "The treasure which your assistance must bring to the infirm is precisely that of spirituality, of the supernatural."  He secondarily stressed the need to "bring material, bodily comfort..." and concluded with the need "to be outstanding nurses, technically speaking, you will have to continue improving on what you do, and keep abreast of all that you ought to know."  Through his spokesperson Cardinal Pizzardo in a 1938 letter to the Bishops, Pope Pius XI shared that,
"it is the duty of every Catholic Nurse to belong to Catholic associations of nurses and to promote them in every way possible."
