ANA is ready to Work with new administration to improve health for all

The American Nurses Association (ANA) is steadfast in its commitment to improve the health of people across the country. We look forward to sharing the valuable expertise of nurses with the new Administration and Congress.

“As President-elect Trump looks to improve America’s health care system we are ready to work with his administration to advance health care that is accessible, affordable, equitable, integrated and innovative,” said Pamela F. Cipriano, PhD, RN, NEA-BC, FAAN, president of ANA.

“This new Administration also has an opportunity to unite the country around a shared vision that puts protecting and promoting quality health care for all Americans above partisan politics,” said Cipriano. “ANA stands ready to offer support and assistance to make this opportunity a reality.”

In addition to the presidential race, many advocates of health care and nursing priorities were elected to the U.S. Congress on Tuesday. In total, 83 percent of the 52 candidates endorsed by ANA’s Political Action Committee (PAC) won their election and will serve in the 115th Congress.

Nurses are the largest single group of health care professionals, and the nursing profession has been voted as
the most trusted profession for 14 years straight. ANA will continue to leverage this trust to advocate for access to quality, affordable health care, optimal nurse staffing and other policies that remove barriers to health care for the broader community.
