Happy Fall! It feels good to be back as an intern with GOVA. I attended the Annual Lobbyist Meeting this month. I learned about new tools and tactics to advocate for nurses from David Swankin of the Citizens Advocacy Center. State Senator Richard T. Moore (D-MA) discussed healthcare reform implementation in the states by explaining his experience in Massachusetts.
Happy Holidays, ANA members. I would like to take a minute to introduce myself, my name is April Canter. I am the newest Associate Director for the ANA Government Affairs department. My areas of focus with the GOVA team will be APRN and Medicare issues.
