In addition, callers will be given in- formation by Humana nurses. The campaign is a cooperative effort of the National Commission on Nursing Implementation Project and the Ad Council to improve the image of nursing. Today, while more nurses are educated and working than ever before in the profession's history, the demand for nursing services in hospitals, nursing homes and home health care agencies has outstripped the supply and created a national nursing shortage. During the three-year campaign the Humana-sponsored toll-free number (1-800-962-NURSE) will be used in all print, radio and television advertising that will focus on the theme "If caring were enough, any- one could be a nurse." Callers will be put on a mailing list and inter- ested people will receive compre- hensive information about nursing as a career choice. Gregory Gibson, executive direc- tor of Humana HospitaI-Greenbrier Valley says, "Humana's com- mittment to the National Nursing Image Campaign promises to rein- force the renewed and growing interest nationwide in nursing as a career choice. I anticipate that this project will have a very positive im- pact on the nursing profession and on the staffing at our hospital."

They have three chil- dren -- Scarlett, Chelsea and Glenn. "1 am against all consolidation plans as they now exist in Green- brier County!
