Eugene “Gene” Majka
I joined ANA because I firmly believe that anyone in any profession has to support their own professional organization. On the job, ANA has helped make me aware of my patients’ many different cultures and their distinct beliefs and values. Their sources of information has helped me to provide appropriate care. ANA also keeps me up to date on the state of nursing in our country, state and local nursing communities. Whether you agree or disagree with the issues discussed, you make yourself aware of the entire situation from many viewpoints. Discussing these issues among your peers improves your understanding of different perspectives within your own profession.
