Advocating for Nurses and Those They Serve
The Foundation supports ANA’s legislative, regulatory and education efforts to keep nurses’ needs at the center of the conversation. You can participate too by lending your voice to the effort.
Efforts thus far include ensuring nurses' needs are understood and factored into government decision making, by engaging with the Administration, government agencies like HHS, FEMA, DOL, and communicating with Congress. The Foundation and ANA's priorities focus on crucial issues such as:
- The needs for testing and increasing production of PPE
- Funding for health care systems, staffing & equipment, and
- Support for nursing education funding
The advocacy driven by the Fund will also campaign to stengthen public health efforts in preventing the spread of coronavirus, managing the care of infected patients, ensuring the flow of accurate public information and shaping the future of the professional field post-pandemic.
In honor of National Nurses Day (May 6, 2020) Chicago's classic rock radio station 97.1 FM ‘The Drive’ conducted a 12-hour fundraiser benefiting the Corona Virus Response Fund. They raised over $12,000 dollars from their listeners and provided the American Nurses Foundation’s Executive Director, Kate Judge, with an opportunity to speak about the fund and need for support.
