ANA is dedicated to building a culture of innovation across the nursing profession. Our innovation work exists to support and nurture the innovative, curious, and pioneering nature of nurses. The ability for a nurse to innovate is not determined by age, length of service, or area of practice – it is defined by a desire to improve the status quo.
