ANA President Grant Urges Action on Gun Violence

August 12, 2019

The American Nurses Association (ANA) on Aug. 7 released a statement from President Ernest J. Grant, PhD, RN, FAAN, regarding the recent mass shootings in the United States. The statement read, in part:  

As a nation, we are yet again grappling with senseless gun violence in the wake of the horrific mass shootings in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH.  

Our hearts are heavy, and we offer our deepest condolences to the families that have lost loved ones to such hateful acts of violence. We are inspired by the unwavering courage of the nurses, first responders, administrators, EMTs, police officers, and all others who saved countless lives.  

Nurses are on the frontlines of care and witness first-hand the unimaginable devastation, heartbreak, and finality of these and other acts of violence. ANA has for decades called on lawmakers to pass common sense policies at the state and federal level that will stem gun violence. 

Please join me in urging your senators to support bipartisan, common sense gun violence prevention.

Katherine Tyler Scott, in Creating Caring & Capable Boards

Serving as a volunteer member of the Colorado Nurses Association Board of Directors is an important and time-consuming effort of the individuals who choose to run for these membership representative positions.  

Elections are held annually for a two-year term and rotate in such a manner that one-half of the Board of Directors rotate off every year, unless one chooses to run for two consecutive terms.  The President is a three-year term, the first year serving as a President-Elect to support leadership succession of the Association.  

Please review the CNA bylaws for more specific information.

Your volunteer role as a member of the CNA Board has three primary aspects: fiduciary, commitment to service, and supportive of CNA Mission and Strategic Plan. 

 Your fiduciary obligation is to balance the financial sustainability of the association and maximize member services.  Your commitment to service recognizes that we are a member driven association dependent on volunteer leadership and involvement. Your supportive role is to help make CNA work for our members and to assist in achieving our mission and strategic plan.

Key personal attributes found to contribute to inclusive teams and learning cultures that foster innovation include curiosity for self and others, engagement of self and others, and, determination that combines tenacity and ability to be change when necessary.  If you are looking for personal challenge and professional commitment to advance nursing in Colorado, please consider these opportunities.
