The ANA is very influential and they have great resources to help nurses gain the resources necessary to advocate for change. Nurses have the knowledge of what nursing practice should entail and we have to be able to relay that knowledge to the legislation. If nurses do not want to be involved in the process, we cannot blame anyone if an undesired law passes out of our own ignorance (Nursing Voice in Politics, 2014). Of course, organizations will help nurses and nurse legislators to network for any needed
support. Together with pro-nursing representatives and knowledgeable nurse legislators we can make changes for the betterment of nursing practice and for safer patient practices resulting in better patient outcomes.
