Full Text: Membership in the Tennessee Nurses Association and the American Nurses Association is like having your own professional practice insurance policy. The premium (dues) is only 75 cents a day. Here are 10 ways that TNA/ANA insures your profession ...

1. TNA monitors and protects the Nurse Practice Act ... your ability to practice as a nurse.

2. TNA advocates for Legislation to improve your practice environment and the health of the citizens of Tennessee.

3. ANA works at the federal level to assure safe needles, safe patient staffing and safe patient handling to provide a safe work environment.

4. ANA maintains the Code of Ethics for Nurses which was first developed in 1926 to give guidance to professional nurses in the practice setting.

5. ANA develops and publishes the Scope and Standards of Practice for Nursing which underpins your professional practice.

6. TNA and ANA actively support efforts to end the nursing shortage.

7. TNA/ANA brings your voice to the state and national health policy tables.

8. ANA and TNA collaborate for you and the nursing profession with other healthcare organizations, locally, nationally and internationally to improve healthcare.

9. Your membership in TNA/ANA allows you to become part of an influential and effective statewide and national network of registered nurses who impact the nursing profession.

10. TNA keeps you informed about issues that affect YOU!

That's a lot to get from an "insurance policy"!
