The American Nurses Association (ANA), the largest nursing organization in the U.S., is contributing to national efforts to eliminate the scourge of vaccine-preventable diseases through its new Bringing Immunity to Every Community project, which focuses on maximizing registered nurses’ key role in increasing vaccination rates.

Under a partnership arrangement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, Bringing Immunity to Every Community aims to increase the knowledge and competency of the nation’s 3.1 million registered nurses in immunization; encourage nurses to be vaccinated; and position nurses as leading advocates for immunization among health care professionals, patients and the public.

A major component of the two-year initiative is a new Web site,, launched today that will be a one-stop shop for resources nurses need to be competent, educated advocates for immunizations.
