For this assignment, you will complete and submit Part 1 of your Professional Nursing Issues Paper. The components of the paper are spread throughout the semester, culminating in the final paper due at the end. (Refer to the Course Schedule for specific due dates.)
The American Nurses Association (ANA) has identified important issues facing Nurses today – Safe Staffing, Home Health, Nursing Home Staffing, Health Reform, Safe Patient Handling and Mobility, Veterans Health Administration – to name a few. The ANA also actively writes and disseminates position statements on current issues and trends in nursing practice. These position statements “guide the profession, amplify the views of nursing, and educate consumers and decision makers” (ANA, n.d.a). They also provide “an explanation, a justification, or a recommendation for a course of action in particular situations” (ANA, n.d.b).
