Cassaundra Hefner MSN, FNP-BC
My journey with ANA began as an ADN student. As I continued my path through nursing, the amount of support and encouragement I received from fellow members was and continues to be priceless. I have more mentors through my membership than I could have ever gained in the workplace alone. But my ANA membership also helps me care for my patients. I stay informed of new regulations and standards of practice, and I am able to participate in decisions that impact patient care across the U.S. ANA allows me to serve as an active patient advocate. Belonging allows me a voice!
