The American Nurses Association’s (ANA) overall aims are to advance the nursing profession and improve healthcare for all. They appeal to each legislative session of the U.S.Congress, Democrats and Republicans alike, to address nursing legislative priorities.
Six main legislative priorities were identified by the ANA for the 117th Congress. Each priority has several items
Review each and choose two items that you believe are the most important and discuss why you chose them
- Strengthen workforce investment and retention: This priority includes items such as increasing the number of nurses and nurse faculty, addressing the nursing shortage, and improving working conditions for nurses.
- Advance quality and safety: This priority includes items such as improving patient safety, reducing healthcare disparities, and ensuring access to quality care.
