Government Affairs

It is the role of the TNA to monitor all legislation and report to our members the status and implications of legislation, who is supportive of our positions or not as they relate to the practice of nursing and the health needs of Tennessee citizens.

Our main goal is to ensure that nurses’ voices are heard and respected by legislators and policymakers.

Nurses are experts in regard to the nursing profession.  Nurses are advocates for quality health care delivery.  Nurses need to ensure their representatives know them and identify them as a go-to source for information regarding legislation and policy.

We will provide email alerts with talking points when these pieces of legislation start moving and we need legislators to hear from you.

Please visit the other pages that have TNA’s legislative positions and legislative calendar for the upcoming week.
