The National Organization for Associate Degree Nursing has joined the American Nurses Association as an organizational affiliate, the ANA announced.
Excellence in nursing education is crucial to the future of the nursing profession, so we are thrilled to partner with an organization that represents the voice of associate degree nursing, where a large number of nurses receive their initial preparation to practice, ANA President Karen A. Daley, RN, PhD, FAAN, said in a news release. This affiliation strengthens the influence of all nurses as ANA works with a broad range of partners to achieve mutual goals on behalf of nurses and patients.
N-OADN promotes associate degree nursing through collaboration, advocacy and education to ensure excellence in the future of healthcare and professional nursing practice.
Through affiliation with the ANA, nursing-related organizations such as N-OADN continue advocating independently on issues specific to their expertise while also benefiting from a larger, united presence that is committed to strengthening the nursing profession and improving patient outcomes, safety and satisfaction in all care settings.
More than 30 specialty organizations connect to ANA as affiliates, representing roughly 400,000 RNs.
Were confident that the affiliation will help unify the nursing profession in the midst of healthcare changes, Donna Meyer, RN, MSN, N-OADN president, said in the news release. It is only through nursing educators and practitioners working together that we will be able to advance the profession of nursing at this very critical time of healthcare transformation.
