Vermont Nurses Association
I joined ANA immediately upon graduating because I am interested in the political aspects of my profession; I wanted to belong to a professional association with political clout. But ANA has also provided me with a comprehensive way to stay informed about my profession. They have kept me abreast of developing issues, connected me with great care resources, and been instrumental in improving safety in my area of practice (geriatric nursing). ANA has provided me with ways to participate in causing change.
