The Arizona Nurses Association Public Policy Committee uses the following document throughout the course of the Arizona Legislative Session:



Health Care Principles

To ensure that all Arizonans have access to health services that promote the triple aim of quality, access and value to achieve effective health outcomes, AzNA supports governmental action to:

  • Increase access to affordable, quality health care and provide adequate funding for state healthcare programs;
  • Allow nurses to practice to the full extent of their education and training; and
  • Assure the delivery of safe and competent nursing care services under the direction and supervision of a professional, registered nurse.


Professional Practice and Workforce Principles

To ensure that all Arizona registered nurses have access to the resources necessary to provide quality patient care, AzNA supports governmental action to:

  • Foster workplace environments that attract and retain nurses and engender professional satisfaction;
  • Safeguard the ability of registered nurses to practice consistent with the Nurse Practice Act and the ANA Code of Ethics for nurses.
  • Support adequate funding for undergraduate and graduate nursing education programs; and
  • Maintain the Arizona State Board of Nursing as an independent, autonomous body to regulate the practice of nursing.
