The American Nurses Association (ANA) vehemently denounces all forms of cultural and religious discrimination. This stance is not only a moral duty, but one rooted in the very fabric of our professional ethics which demand respect, dignity, and sensitivity to all individuals regardless of their background, culture, or religion. Antisemitism is a reprehensible form of hatred that continues to cause deep suffering and irreparable pain to generations of individuals and communities of Jewish heritage or faith worldwide. Any act of hatred, violence, or discrimination against Jewish communities has no place in a humane society.

American Nurses Association Underscores Urgency for Safe Staffing Solutions, Including Minimum Nurse-to-Patient Ratios

SILVER SPRING, MD – Today, the American Nurses Association (ANA) underscores the urgency for Congressional leaders, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and other key stakeholders to advance efforts in the implementation of safe staffing standards, including minimum nurse-to-patient ratios.
Shannon McClendon, firstname.lastname@example.org
SILVER SPRING – MD - The American Nurses Association (ANA) strongly opposes any legislation or effort that would prohibit diversity, equity, inclusion (DEI) programs or dictate how history is taught. Prohibiting colleges, universities and health care-related professional institutions and licensing boards from adopting DEI training, education, and programs would pose significant setbacks at multiple levels. These actions and legislative measures set a dangerous and insidious precedent. ANA urges all academic and health care institutions to adopt and aggressively maintain policies, procedures, and practices that embrace inclusiveness, promote civility and mutual respect of nurses and their patients.
