Virtual Nursing Professional Issues Panel

The American Nurses Association invites ANA members to apply for a Professional Issues Panel to develop national policy on virtual nursing practice as a care delivery modality. The focus of the panel will be to develop principles and guidelines to implement and incorporate virtual nursing into nursing practice, irrespective of the technology used to deliver virtual nursing care.

Expected outcomes:

  • Definition of virtual nursing.
  • Develop guidance for the use of virtual nursing that speaks to:
    • Funding and reimbursement models
    • Impact on nurse and patient outcomes
    • Impact on portability, licensure and other regulations governing nursing practice, including nurse liability
    • Impact on nurse staffing
    • Ethical implications of this practice

Steering Committee  – The Steering Committee will include up to 15 ANA members who will do a deep dive into the topic. This committee will meet virtually, at least twice monthly, over a six month period.

The Steering Committee will complete this work during the first quarter of 2025. The first virtual meeting of the Steering Committee is scheduled for July 9 from 3:00 to 4:30 pm ET.

ANA is looking for panel members with the following types of experience and interest:

  • Engaged in current nursing practice where virtual nursing is being used.
  • Experience in managing the application of virtual nursing within a health care setting.
  • Experience in evaluating virtual nursing as a nursing practice modality.

Applications are welcome from nurses across the care spectrum.

The application period opens on April 8, 2024, and closes at 11:59 pm ET on May 6, 2024.
