Center for American Nurses services to be integrated into ANA

To best meet the needs of registered nurses, the boards of the American Nurses Association (ANA) and Center for American Nurses (Center) are pleased to announce that the Center’s products and services will be integrated within ANA. Over the past seven years, the Center has developed excellent resources for RNs in service of its mission to actively collaborate and partner with individuals and groups to create healthy work environments. Key programs include: conflict competency training and consultation, workshops and publications on lateral violence and bullying, nurse investor’s education project and a host of resources offered through its affiliate, the Institute for Nursing Research and Education. Integrating the Center’s products and services into ANA will deliver valuable resources to nurses and enhance ANA’s membership benefits.

“The ANA’s and Center’s boards view the integration of the Center’s work into ANA as a win-win for both organizations and the nurses of America,” said Center President Donna Warzynski, MSHSA, RN, NE BC, who, along with other Center board members, will serve on an advisory committee to ANA to guide the continuing development of products that will directly assist nurses in their lives and careers.

“The integration of the Center’s work builds on a decade of effort to deliver innovative resources to nurses that are useful in their lives and careers,” said ANA President Karen A. Daley, PhD, MPH, RN, FAAN. “Together, we can continue to achieve great things for the nurses of this country.”

The Center for American Nurses (Center) is a separately incorporated organization that evolved in 2003 from a workforce advocacy program that had been internal to ANA. More information is available online at www.centerforamericannurses.org.
