NJSNA Advocacy Corner
NJSNA is advocating for nurses by speaking with our political leaders both on the state and federal level.
There are many issues that have arisen during this pandemic. Here are three that we need to focus on improving asap:
- Availability of PPE for all healthcare facilities: Acute, Long Term, Group Homes, Home Care etc.
- Mental Health Counseling for both healthcare workers and the community at large
- Ability of APNs to have full practice authority
Here are some resources:
Past President Benjamin Evans has challenged everyone, both members and non-members, to donate $36.50 (10 cents/day) to the Institute for Nursing. Any donations will be used to assist New Jersey nurses adversely affected by the Corona Virus Pandemic . The IFN will be donating any money received to “Nurses House” to provide this financial assistance. Nurses House is a non-profit group which raises money for nurses in financial need. The American Nurses Foundation is also supporting this initiative and is taking donations on a national basis.
Any NJ Nurses needing assistance can apply at http://pages.nurseshouse.org/content/Covid-19%20Application%20Final%202.pdf
To make a donation, please visit https://njsna.org/institute-for-nursing/donate/. Thank you for your support.

NJSNA Legislative Successes
Politics have a great impact on nursing. Therefore, nursing should have a meaningful impact on politics.
