ANA Professional Issues Panels

The world of professional nursing practice and health policy is ever evolving to meet the new dynamics of care needs in every setting. In order to effectively address these changes, ANA uses Professional Issues Panels to drive toward informed decision-making, member engagement and active dialogue with members. Panels will be convened around specific practice and policy questions as approved by the ANA Board of Directors. Each Panel will include both a Steering Committee and an Advisory Committee to ensure sufficient rigor while also allowing for broad feedback from a full range of practice arenas and interests.

Steering Committee – The Steering Committee will typically include up to 15 ANA members who will do a deep dive into the topic. This committee will meet intensively via conference call for a three to six month period, depending on the topic.

Advisory Committee – The Advisory Committee will provide additional information, feedback and advice to ANA and the Steering Committee by responding online to specific questions, documents and dialogue.

ANA Membership Matters – All registered nurses wishing to join a Professional Issues Panel must be an ANA member. (Not a member? – Join Now!)


This exciting and dynamic format seeks to draw on the knowledge and expertise of every ANA member.
