2017 Year of the Healthy Nurse

Do you want to eat healthier, be more active, get better sleep, and have more joy? This is your year! ANA is declaring 2017 to be the Year of the Healthy Nurse! Join us as every month we tackle specific wellness issues that all of us can improve.

ANA defines a healthy nurse as someone who actively focuses on creating and maintaining a balance and synergy of physical, intellectual, emotional, social, spiritual, personal and professional wellbeing. We feel that nurses are ideally positioned to be the best role models, educators, and advocates of health, safety, and wellness. So come participate with us fully this year as we focus on YOU! Visit this page every month to see what is being offered as resources, events, and activities for that specific month. Join us on ANA's Facebook and Twitter pages to interact with other nurses to share recipes, success stories, challenges, and useful tips. Take our newest health survey. Engage in the Healthy Nurse, Healthy Nation™ Grand Challenge. This year, let's improve the health of the nation's 3.6 million registered nurses and in turn improve the health of the nation!
