Asking and Advocating for What Nurses Need

According to the 2022 Workplace Survey31% of responding nurses stated that their organizations could increase their overall work satisfaction by “[genuinely listening] to my voice and [addressing] my needs.”

That’s you. Your colleagues. Your friends.

Your voice is needed from the to those on Capitol Hill. This webinar will inform you about the tools and information needed to ask for what you need. ANA’s Policy & Government Affairs team will provide you with an overview of how they, with the help of ANA members and advocates, work to improve the nursing profession using the case study of our work to prevent and end Workplace Violence. You and your colleagues will receive:

  • An overview on how ANA works with Congressional representatives and staff to influence changes to federal law to improve nursing
  • An understanding of how federal laws are implemented through the regulatory process, with a focus on the Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the primary federal agency responsible for addressing workplace violence prevention
  • Updates on the wide range of activities happening in state legislatures across the country, featuring Ahnyel Burkes, interim Executive Director of Louisiana State Nurses Association
  • Actions you can take to be part of ANA’s grassroots efforts. When you add your voice to the conversation, you are influencing elected officials – reminding them that nurses are paying attention

The webinar will end with a conversation with ANA Director-at-Large, Amy McCarthy, to provide you with the context of how you can take what you learned to your everyday work as a nurse and advocate.

Capella University generously supported the development and production of the 2023 National Nurses Month Webinar.
