Friends and Colleagues,
Today, the nursing workforce consists of nearly 3.6 million registered nurses, and there will be far more registered nurse jobs available than jobs in any other profession through 2024, at more than 100,000 per year in the United States alone. We know that our organization must continue to grow, flourish, and change as well in order to fearlessly lead nurses forward.
So today, we are thrilled to announce the launch of the new ANA Enterprise and our refreshed American Nurses Association (ANA) and American Nurses Foundation (ANF) brands. As the organizing structure of ANA, the Foundation, and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), the ANA Enterprise will leverage the combined strength of each organization to drive excellence in practice and ensure the voice and vision of nurses are recognized.
The ANA Enterprise represents our promise to empowering nurses everywhere to succeed. As one, cohesive ANA Enterprise, we will ensure that nurses are supported and rewarded for their dedication to excellence in practice and extraordinary patient care in their institutions and across the broader health care space.
