  • Barriers to RN Scope of Practice:
    ANA is seeking members to serve on this important committee.
    Applicants must be ANA members. Applications will be accepted through October 10, 2014.

    This Professional Issues Panel will identify and clarify barriers to RNs practicing to the full extent of their education, experience, and scope of practice (as set down by the relevant Nurse Practice Act), and guide the development of resources to address these barriers at the institutional, state, and federal level. The Steering Committee will consist of up to fifteen members and will conduct deliberations via virtual meetings beginning in November, 2014. The chosen Steering Committee will meet once or twice a month via conference call for approximately two hours in addition to email dialogue. Panel work generally takes approximately six months to complete.  All applicants not selected for the Steering Committee will have the opportunity to serve on the associated Advisory Group via ANA NurseSpace.
