The American Nurses Association (ANA) stated today that its #EndNurseAbuse initiative, which launched in 2017 to address workplace abuse against nurses, includes eliminating sexual harassment.

"Nurses are obliged to provide for patient safety, to avoid patient abandonment, and to withdraw only when assured that nursing care is available to the patient. Nurses who decide not to participate on the grounds of conscientious objection must communicate this decision in a timely and appropriate manner, in advance and in time for alternate arrangements to be made for patient care."

“The American Nurses Association is deeply concerned about the devastating impact that the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will have on health care in this country. Under the guise of a promise to slash taxes for corporations and middle-class Americans is a clear intent to dismantle the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which has helped nearly 16 million Americans obtain health coverage. It is also no secret the actions that will be pursued to make up for the inflated deficit caused by this tax bill will be the cutting of essential anti-poverty programs as well as Medicare and Medicaid."
For AMA to imply that APRNs are incapable of providing excellent care or that their care puts the patient at risk is blatantly dishonest. The future of health care calls on all health care professionals to work together as a team to meet the growing demand for health care services.

The Administration’s late-night announcement was the second assault in a single day that will gut the health care system established under the ACA and once again ignores the expertise of health care experts like nurses.
"This is an all-out assault on the consumer protections gained under the Affordable Care Act, creating sub-par health care for some and higher costs for others: Patients could be sold insurance plans that do not cover essential health services, like contraception, mental health care, and addiction treatment; patients with pre-existing conditions may not be able to afford coverage and the health care markets could be destabilized, leaving consumers with fewer – if any – options for affordable, quality health coverage."
The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC)announced today that Southwestern Vermont Medical Center (SVMC), in Bennington, Vermont is the winner of the 2017 ANCC Magnet Prize™, sponsored by Cerner, a global leader in health care technology.
