The world of professional nursing practice and health policy is ever evolving to meet the new dynamics of care needs in every setting. In order to effectively address these changes, ANA uses Professional Issues Panels and Advisory Panels to drive toward informed decision-making, member engagement and active dialogue with members.
Professional Issues Panels – Professional Issues Panels will be convened around specific practice and policy questions as approved by the ANA Board of Directors. Panels will typically include up to 15 members who will meet via conference call for a three to six month period, depending on the topic. The resulting work will be advisory to the ANA Board of Directors and ANA.
Advisory Panels – Advisory panels will be online communities of interest that correspond with the Professional Issues Panels. Nurses are welcome to submit their name as someone who is interested in serving as respondents to questions and issues related to the professional issues panel’s topic. This dialogue will be conducted electronically and serve to inform the professional issues panel and ANA.
This exciting and dynamic format seeks to draw on the knowledge and expertise of every ANA member.
