A diverse group of nurses from across New York has launched a new professional organization for all registered nurses (RNs) in the state. American Nurses Association-New York (ANA-New York) is dedicated to promoting excellence in nursing practice, seeks to improve the quality of health care services, and promotes the professional and leadership development of registered nurses. The American Nurses Association (ANA), the national professional organization, has recognized ANA-New York as its newest state affiliate. Nurses who join ANA-New York
will have membership in, and receive benefits from, both the state and national organizations.
