Committee on Appointments

The Committee on Appointments (COA), comprised of members of the ANA Board of Directors (board), is charged to recommend individuals for appointment to ANA boards and committees.  Every year, the COA disseminates a Call for Nominations for Appointed Positions to identify qualified candidates to fill various volunteer positions on ANA’s committees and subsidiary boards.  The ANA Board of Directors considers the recommendations of the COA and makes appointments based on its input.

Special Nominations Process - Minority Fellowship Program (MFP) National Advisory Committee

The 2018 Call for Nominations for Appointed Positions has been reopened for the Minority Fellowship Program (MFP) National Advisory Committee.

The Committee's major function is to advise the ANA MFP Program staff on strategies and activities to achieve the goals of the MFP-Traditional grant (given by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)) at ANA. The purpose of the MFP-Traditional grant is to reduce health disparities and improve health care outcomes for racially and ethnically diverse populations by increasing the number of culturally competent behavioral health professionals available to provide high quality care to underserved minority populations in the public and private non-profit sectors, and in clinical and community-based organizations and institutions. Additionally,  these minority nurses prepared at the doctoral level are the thought leaders in the areas of research and policy development focused on the elimination of health disparities in minority populations. The MFP provides opportunities for minority nurses to attain a doctoral degree, with certification in mental health and substance abuse disorders prevention, treatment, and recovery across the life span. Additional information can be found at the program's website: www.emfp.org.
