About

Mission Statement: Nurses advancing our profession to improve health for all.

Who We Are

The American Nurses Association (ANA) is the only full-service professional organization representing the interests of the nation's 3.1 million registered nurses through its constituent member nurses associations and its organizational affiliates. The ANA advances the nursing profession by fostering high standards of nursing practice, promoting the rights of nurses in the workplace, projecting a positive and realistic view of nursing, and by lobbying the Congress and regulatory agencies on health care issues affecting nurses and the public.

What We Do

For more than 100 years ANA is the voice of nursing. This voice is heard through policy development, lobbying, publications/newsletters, involvement and partnerships with other organizations, and our presence on the Internet. ANA’s work addresses the needs of nurses in their professional settings as well as patient care. Policy development and lobbying efforts of ANA ensure the rightful place of nurses in all healthcare settings. ANA gets the message to our membership and other nurses through our Web site NursingWorld.org and our two publications The American Nurse and the official journal American Nurse Today. These publications, along with our conferences, provide an important opportunity for dialogue amongst nurses on the important issues of the day. Strategic partnerships and collaboration with other organizations strengthens the voice of nursing and expands the influence of professional nursing in all settings as the role of nurses develops to meet ever changing needs of patients and consumers.

Honoring Nurses

Each and every day nurses care for patients and communities, making a positive difference in the lives of many. These compassionate and competent nurses are a credit to the field of health care and their efforts deserve recognition. ANA is committed to honoring nurses whose dedication and achievements have contributed to the nursing profession.
