The American Nurses Association's Government Affairs Department is proud to
announce the premier of the Nurse Political Action Leaders (N-PAL) program.
This program, in conjunction with the Nurse Strategic Action Team (N-STAT),
is the heart of ANA's efforts to ensure that Members of Congress hear the voice
of nursing. N-PAL and N-STAT both promote grassroots action — nurses reaching
out to their elected officials on the issues of concern to their profession and
patients. Who better to advocate for quality health care than those who are on
the front lines?
ANA members who are chosen as Nurse Political Action Leaders will be ANA's
liaisons to legislators and legislative staff in assigned legislative districts.
The ANA and the Constituent & State Nurses Associations (C/SNAs) collaborate
to appoint an N-PAL for each Congressional District and for each Senator. While
any member of a C/SNA who has an interest in and commitment to nursing and
public policy is eligible, C/SNA members with a personal connection with their
legislator are especially encouraged to apply.

NPAL application form.
