As a nurse leader, you face many challenges. What you may not be aware of are the myriad legislative issues affecting the nursing profession as a whole.
Congressional oversight dictates many of our own policies. The question is: Do you want to have a seat at the table? Below are several issues that could be game-changers for our profession. We urge you to learn about each one and consider its impact on your ability to do your job successfully.
The work of nurses is caring for patients. Nurses rely on data driven research to improve patient outcomes, quality, safety and the delivery of cost effective care. Research shows certain kinds of information technology can limit errors as well as improve care and efficiency.
AONL advocates for funding Nursing Workforce Development programs authorized under Title VIII of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 296 et seq.). These programs support the supply and distribution of qualified nurses to meet our nation’s increasing health care needs.
