    "Staffing Survey - Last Week to Give us Your Input
    Survey Ends 1/22/01

    Reprint of Announcement -
    The American Nurses Association is conducting a survey to determine current perceptions among nurses about their working conditions. The results of this survey will be used as evidence and support in ANAs state and federal legislative and regulatory activities. It is important to have as many nurses as possible participate in the survey. We are hoping to have a significant number of nurses respond so that we can analyze the data state by state.

    Fifty (50) nurses will be randomly selected to receive a $25 certificate toward the purchase of ANA publications.

    Please take time to fill out the questions in both sections of the survey. Part one has questions about your work environment, and part two has demographic questions.

    All information received through this survey will be held in strictest confidence. All information will be used in the aggregate with no individual information being used. Respondents will not be contacted for any solicitation purposes........." http://www.ana.org

    American Nurses Association to Release Survey on Nurses' Working Conditions

    Event: Press conference to release findings of a national survey that measures current perceptions among nurses about their working conditions. Issues covered by the survey include short staffing, mandatory overtime, occupational health and safety concerns, and the practice of "floating" nurses to unfamiliar units that do not match their training or expertise. ANA has called the widespread problem of inadequate RN staffing a public health crisis. Strategies to address the problem will be offered.

    Speakers: American Nurses Association President Mary Foley, MS, RN, and United American Nurses (UAN) Vice Chairperson Ann Converso, RN, will discuss the survey results and ANA/UAN initiatives. Also speaking will be Becky Hartman of Wichita, KS, whose mother, Shirley Keck, went into respiratory distress and slipped into a coma while hospitalized. Mrs. Keck's family claims there were no available nurses to tend to their mother, who is now partially paralyzed and requires 24-hour care. Her family received a $2.7 million settlement from Wesley Medical Center in Wichita. In addition, at least one local area nurse will be on hand to relate her story regarding staffing and working conditions, and to answer questions.

    Date/Time: Tuesday, February 6, at 10 a.m.

    Location: National Press Building, Zenger room, 529 14th Street, Northwest Washington, DC 20045

    update:
    "ANA and You
    Bring National Attention to Nursing Concerns"
    2/20/01

    "Thanks for your help in providing us the critical input that has brought this issue national attention.

    Immediately following the release of the online Staffing Survey results on Feb. 6, we received an outpouring of media attention, both in print and television. The topics receiving notice are the staffing survey, nursing shortage and nursing workplace concerns. ANA was mentioned on more than 100 television stations across the United States in the days immediately following the press conference. On February 13, NBC Nightly News ran a segment on the nursing shortage in which ANA was mentioned and a copy of the survey was shown.

    ANA President Mary Foley, MS, RN, was a guest on Good Morning America on February 14. Foley participated in a segment that focused on emergency room diversions and mentioned the nursing shortage. Referring to the online survey, she discussed the need to improve the pipeline into nursing by getting more people into nursing schools, and into the profession after school. Foley also emphasized increasing opportunities for education in the specialties,particularly the ones hardest hit by the shortage.

    "Improvements in the workplace environment, combined with aggressive and innovative recruitment efforts, are paramount." http://www.ana.org
