ANA PAC Endorsement ..., 23 Oct 2010 [cached]
ANA PAC Endorsement Process
ANA PAC Endorsement Process
Each election cycle, ANA-PAC endorses candidates who have demonstrated strong support for nursing and healthcare issues. During the 2007-2008 election cycle, ANA-PAC endorsed 101 candidates for Federal Office-this endorsement represents the ANA's highest seal of approval. Out of the 101 candidates who were endorsed, 90 won and 11 lost. This 89% win rate is ANA's highest ever!
Since the 2010 election is in full gear, ANA's Government Affairs team want to make sure our members know the details about ANA-PAC's endorsement process. First, federal candidates under consideration for endorsement are judged using concrete endorsement criteria, which is set forth by the ANA-PAC Board. Political Action Specialists assess the CMA's (Constituent Member Association) support of the candidate, and gather information on the campaign required by the criteria, by communicating with CMA's, conducting candidate interviews, distributing ANA's candidate questionnaire to non-incumbents, assessing incumbent's legislative records on ANA's priority issues, reviewing campaign polling and fundraising information, and tracking races in trade publications and newspapers.
If the candidate is a non-incumbent, it is preferable that an interview with the candidate be conducted both at home in the congressional district and in Washington D.C. Whenever possible CMA staff should conduct field interviews with non-incumbent candidates using the ANA Candidate Questionnaire, and report on the results of the candidate meeting. If the candidate is an incumbent, it is not necessary to conduct an interview, however, the CMA staff or members may want to take this opportunity to meet with the member of Congress to brief them on ANA's legislative and regulatory agenda.
If a candidate is approved for endorsement by the PAC Board, ANA staff faxes final approval forms to the CMA, requesting official sign-off on the endorsement as soon as possible. Once approval is received, staff will notify the candidate of ANA's endorsement.
If you have any questions regarding the endorsement process, please contact ANA's Government Affairs staff at

ANA believes strongly in the value of Advanced Practice Registered Nurses.We presented APRNs as one of the keys to solving America's health care crisis when we outlined the need for APRN autonomous care delivery in Nursing's Agenda for Health Care Reform.We have been working for you for years, and we continue to work for you today.
Protecting Your Scope of PracticeANA is a founding member of the Coalition for Patients' Rights.This group is fighting the AMA's recent Scope of Practice initiative, which is attempting to limit the scope of practice for advanced practice registered nurses and other licensed professionals.Read about this important issue in the July/August 2006 American Nurse (page 5)
Ensuring You Get Paid DirectlyANA worked hard to ensure that APRNs received direct reimbursement for your services from Medicaid and Medicare; and today we are working just as hard to see that coverage is expanded by Medicaid, so that more APRN services are recognized.Additional information is available on the Advanced Practice Medicaid Reimbursement page.
Protecting Your Rights at the State LevelANA, working together with our Constituent Member (State) Associations, helped remove geographic and practice setting limitations for APRNs.We are still working state by state to ensure that state laws affecting Advanced Practice Registered Nurses are both fair and consistent across the country, and that your scope of practice is not unfairly limited.For more information go to the Government Affairs State page.
Proving Your ValueANA ensured that nursing services, including thereby Advanced Practice Registered Nurses, are included in cost-benefits analyses by launching the National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators.
ANA's publishing arm,, has made sure that measurement criteria specific to Advanced Practice Registered Nurses is included in our foundational Standards of Practice books.We also print a number of other books specific to APRNs.See a list at:
ANA also recognizes that you need CE hours to maintain your certification and/or license.
In many ways large and small, ANA is continuously working to promote and protect Advanced Practice Registered Nurses.
