The ANA is worthless, looks down on floor nurses, don't join!

  1. The ANA has decided to turn their backs on RNs in Massachusetts. The people of Massachusetts have spoken and want to vote on the matter of nurse-patient ratios this November. The ANA, through their local Mass. affiliate, has decided to oppose the nurses who put this on the map.

    A short history. The ANA has been parading around a similar bill for over a decade with zero success. They can't handle the fact that another organization, let alone a union, has found some traction. The ANA has decided to play politics and stand jealously in their way.

    If you aren't a member, keep it that way. If you are a member, cancel your payments and send an email to leadership. If you're a student, don't let their reps off-the-hook and ask the tough questions when they come to your campus.

    Quite simply, this is some petty B.S. from a do nothing body of suits who sit in their DC offices while floor nurses break their backs with ridiculous assignments.



    Disclaimer: I have no membership with any of the nursing organizations who support or oppose this bill.

    Yeah why would they be against mandated nurse to patient ratios especially if such a move is to be replaced by yet another useless nurse committee. Its senseless to be. I'm not renewing at all

    I had a membership for a few years... it was part of my "clinical ladder",
    for the Magnet hospital I used to work for. Anyway, I kept my membership
    for quite a while, just didn't get around to cancelling. I got free CE's
    out of the deal every year, that's about all I really got out of it.

    I have never had any use for the ANA. They tend to look down on ADNs, and they support all kinds of political causes I oppose. Now they're standing *against* mandated staffing ratios? What is WRONG with those people?
