BJ Bartleson, RN, MS, NEA-BC

VP Nursing and Clinical Services at California Hospital Association

On behalf of the California Hospital Association, it gives me great pleasure to celebrate the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife, and thank ANA\California for their unwavering support during these unprecedented times.   Who better than California RN leaders to chart a course through these highly uncertain, ambiguous, volatile times.

Laura Chechel, MSN, RN, CNS

Nurse Manager at UC San Diego Medical Center

This organization has helped me network with nurse leaders throughout the state and help advocate for nursing professionals and the patients we care for. All nurses should be a part of ANA\California to ensure our collective voice is heard in policy and legislation that affects our daily practice.

CEO of HealthImpact

ANA\California has been a valued partner in representing professional nursing to statewide nurse leader coalitions.  It has been a pleasure to work with and learn from thoughtful ANA\California leaders in advancing the profession.
