USD Nursing Students' Policy Revision Recommendation Accepted by ANA

In the spring of 2019, during a health policy course, three second year Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) students Janelle Bird, Olivia Kearnes, and Steven Pochop proposed a change in the American Nurses Association (ANA) statement on vaccinations. Their proposed changes were adopted at the national ANA meeting in Washington, D.C. last June. On Nov. 9, 2019 these students were recognized by ANA/California with a letter of appreciation for their policy work and advocacy on vaccinations. The meeting was held at the San Diego Hilton.

For more information about the proposed changes and their story, please see ANA’s Nursing Voice at http://associationpublications.com/flipbooks/anaca/2019/Fall/18/
