ANA Advocacy

GNA & ANA  Advocating for Nurses. Every Day.

GNA is the constituent state nurses association of the American Nurses Association (ANA) in Georgia. While GNA is advocating for the interests of the nursing profession at the state level, ANA is advocating for nurses at the federal level daily. ANA ensures all 3.1 million nurses are represented across the board and that nurses interests are not overlooked in the lawmaking process.


ANA’s State Government Affairs program also tracks trends in nursing-related legislation in the states. More than 1,000 nursing and health care-related bills introduced in state legislatures each session are reviewed, including but not limited to nursing scope of practice and workplace issues, such as safe staffing, mandatory overtime, safe patient handling & movement and workplace violence. ANA provides reports on specific state-level policy issues that include a background/overview and legislation enacted by state.


ANA’s web site features an array of public policy and advocacy resources, including position statements, Capitol Updates, toolkits and much more! To learn more, visit
