NANN Approaches Changing Political Landscape With Vision, Fortitude, and Conviction
Whether you are a seasoned political aficionado or a legislative novice, it is likely that you have considered the implications of the new presidential administration's priorities on our neonatal patients and their families and how top cabinet officers and key executive agencies will implement policy visions with respect to nursing education and practice. Notably, a new presidency will bring resolution to the vacant Supreme Court seat. With more than 60 freshmen members of Congress on their way to Capitol Hill following the 2017 inauguration, we also anticipate considerable adjustments for the 115th Congress.
National Association of Neonatal Nurses (NANN) remains committed to advocating for optimal care and health outcomes for neonates and their families. NANN will continue to impact nursing practice regulation and policy by fostering member engagement and collaboration with other healthcare-related groups to shape legislative and regulatory issues at the federal and state levels. Here are some relevant policy and advocacy topics to watch in the coming months.
