The American Nurse (Archive)

For almost 50 years, The American Nurse newspaper was the official member news periodical of the American Nurses Association (ANA).

Established in 1968, The American Nurse chronicled history as ANA’s work mirrored changes in the profession and society at large. During this time it documented the work of the association, its leaders, state and constituent nurses associations, and individual nurse members. The rich history of the association has been reflected in the voices and expertise shared in opinion pieces, interviews, news stories, and photo spreads.

Through its pages, The American Nurse has helped to inspire, inform, and lead the profession. We appreciate the dedication and commitment to excellence of its editors, staff members, and contributors. The November/December 2016 issue was the last issue of The American Nurse. Beginning in January 2017, news of ANA is included in an expanded section, ANA on the Frontline, in its official journal, American Nurse Today

The American Nurse archives and web site at will remain available as member resources.

Many of the recent past issues of the journal can be found here (accessible to members only):
