The American Nurses Association needs to hear from YOU!
One of the crucial pieces to ANA's legislative success is hearing from nurses on the front lines. Share your story to ensure your voice is heard on Capitol Hill. Has short staffing compromised the care you are able to provide to your patients? Do you worry after a long shift about errors or near-misses which may have occurred? Do you have a staffing solution that has worked? We want to hear from you!
Please keep in mind that ANA cannot address and resolve your individual situation. Ultimately our goal is to help all RNs in the country who are working under unsafe staffing conditions. We wish we could personally address every story submitted, but we cannot. However, there are resources on this website that may help you handle the problems that you face.
In order to protect the privacy of patients and other staff, please do not use actual patient or staff names, or identify the facility in which you work. After removing your name and any personal details, parts of your story may be used by ANA in educational or lobbying materials. We will add your name to our data base to use/contact with further developments in this campaign. Your name will not be shared with anyone in relation to your story without your explicit consent.
