ANA Calls On Nurses To Help Secure Health Care’s Future
The American Nurses Association (ANA) is steadfast in its support for the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and is once again calling on nurses to get involved in the efforts to secure health care’s future. ANA President Karen A. Daley, PhD, MPH, RN, FAAN, is speaking to nurses across the country about the attempts to turn back the Affordable Care Act, and urging nurses to “fight to protect the hard-won, health care reform law that is vital to the future of this country.” Tomorrow she will address a group of more than 1000 nurses and lawmakers in Topeka, Kansas, about the benefits of the current reform law and what is at stake for nurses, patients and the nation. Daley has also recorded a video message to nurses which is available for viewing here.
Throughout the health care reform debate, ANA provided information on its website www.rnaction.org/healthcare, and encouraged nurses to engage in the process. That site is now a source for nurses to learn about efforts to roll back ACA provisions and how they can make their voices heard. ANA will also keep its members informed through its newspaper, The American Nurse. Nurses may also follow ANA’s work on health care and other legislative issues via Twitter here.
