Policy & Advocacy

From state legislatures to the White House, nurses have a unique opportunity to lend their expertise in influencing policy at all levels of government. The American Nurses Association ensures all 3.6 million nurses are represented across the board and that nurses interests are not ignored by bureaucrats who lack true knowledge of the issues at the bedside. Being the #1 most trusted profession in the country allows nurses to truly take charge and make a difference in the policy arena.

Belonging to my professional organization allows me to remain current about issues that affect the ability of registered nurses to provide care to the American public. I know that the work of nursing cannot occur unless there is money available for ANA to be present at the negotiating table when major decisions are made about health care in America.
