As part of the American Nurses Association’s (ANA) 2008 presidential endorsement process, representatives from ANA’s Political Action Committee (ANA-PAC) and Presidential Endorsement Task Force met with Gov. Bill Richardson on Wednesday to discuss his views on nursing and health care. ANA-PAC’s goal is to engage presidential contenders of all parties in endorsement considerations. Through its endorsement, ANA seeks to recommend to its members and registered nurses nationwide the candidate who will best advance the interests of the nursing profession while serving in the White House.
