Recognize Nurses as Powerful People

m Bookmark and Share
The American Nurses Association (ANA), the largest nursing organization in the U.S., encourages nurses to show support for the leaders in our profession by voting for nurses in Modern Healthcare’s “100 Most Powerful People in Healthcare” ranking. Nurses played a key role in the passage of health reform legislation this year. We helped make history! Getting nurse leaders included in the “Most Powerful” rankings is an excellent way to bring much deserved visibility to the nursing profession.

Let’s work together to get nurses on the list. You can help make it happen by voting here. Voting will continue through Friday, June 25. The final ranking will be published in the Aug. 23, 2010, issue of Modern Healthcare.
