The American Nurses Association (ANA) provides a voice and resource for all nurses. With concerns and issues related to the health care system and care delivery changing almost daily, dedication and a united focus is essential in order to impact the outcome(s) for our constituents. If we don’t have a united voice, someone else will speak on our behalf. Legislative advocacy has always been important but it is especially vital now.

The ANA-PAC creates the opportunities for dialogue to promote collaboration within the profession to support and motivate the work being done on behalf of all nurses. Other benefits include publications, and social media with current information, continuing education opportunities, invitations to special events, and opportunities to network.

The work of the ANA-PAC impacts nurses, nursing and the future of our profession. To make a difference, you need to belong! On a more personal note, I have always believed to those who have been given much, much is expected. Service represents gratitude and action.
