BOARD of NURSING forcing Nurses to attend AA meetings and Hold hands and pray

We are seeking Nurses who want to come together and speak out and get justice for being forced to go to AA and to parrot its ideology as part of their punishment!

Many Nurses have never got into any trouble. Still they are made to attend 3 -5 meetings a weeks for 5 years for some .

Would you like to talk with us?

Write to us at makeaasafer@gmail.com

Many Nurses have been contacting me lately and are furious and want to sue and speak out and change this.

How long has this been going on.

How have they gotten away with it ?

Its a violation of AA’s tenants and traditions

Its a violation of our First Amendment Rights 9 separation of Church and State

  1. AA is not an organization that forces prayer but a higher power. Who you decide and what your higher power is to you. They do not pray but at the end of each meeting but say the Lords Prayer which is in the Bible. It’s for the one who keeps us sober.
    AA is for those who have a desire to stop drinking. So if you have a problem with drinking it is a great support group.
    Reading Daily Reflections and Twenty Four Hours a Day with time to talk to my higher power helps me stay sober.
    I think the question here is do you really want help? Do you really want to stay sober? Do you still want to be a nurse and service the community. We are not perfect and help patients every day. Remember Alcohol is cunning, baffling and powerful.
    Is your life unmanageable and are you powerless over alcohol seek help.
    I am glad I did. I now have a chance to live and help others. An RN that is Sober today.

    • Avis, I want to congratulate YOU on your sobriety. However, you’re not reciting the “Lord’s Prayer” as stated by Jesus in the bible in AA…. Jesus’s teachings and the bible never tell you to remove your shortcomings.

      Jesus’s gospel, 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 is about him dying on the cross because of your shortcomings. You’re declining his loving sacrifice by asking him to remove your shortcomings when he already paid the price on the cross.

      “The one who is actually keeping you sober” as you stated is a man named Reinhold Niebuhr, who died in the 70s. He is the author of the “serenity prayer” used throughout AA meetings. Contrary to every atheist and agnostic argument, AA contradicts the Bible in each step and beyond, so I’m writing to set the record straight.
      AA does not use ANY Christian beliefs from scripture, which is why I left. I could not participate in a religious group knowing it contradicts what the Bible instructs as recorded in the New Testament. AA is teaching you an unbiblical social gospel, i.e. follow our steps and God will restore you to sanity and make you righteous.
      The reality is, AA is actually using 8 steps of “Thought reform” or brainwashing to correct your behavior by Robert Lifton, an atheist. Your faith is in Lifton and Reinhold, not Jesus.

      Faith in Jesus is found in the gospel, 1 Corinthians’ 15 1-4. There are no steps or works required when you have true faith in the gospel because the moral inventory is negated with grace.

        This is a very important point you are making. I think many New Agey types think AA is Something special – and that God is something you can make up – like Designing a dress to ones liking- What a bunch of bread heads. Many are leaving in droves as we speak.

  2. AVIS – you are wrong – Nurses are forced to not only go to meetings for 5 years —– but are forced to believe and talk the ideology –its a violation of their civil rights .

  3. It is irresponsible to place AA as the ultimatum for any professional or person for that matter, especially whether or not someone wants to be a nurse and serve the community. One sided testimonies in favor of AA are morally problematic because it is leaves the audience with an inaccurate and questionable view about the benefits of AA, and it definitely deprives the audience of the basic human right to health, information, and life. I suggest get the facts about pros and cons of AA. I strongly recommend being proactive in the legal battles to defend citizen’s rights to freedom of conscience and freedom from religion in the case of coerced AA which has been found to be highly religious by many U.S. courts.
