How to Take Care of the Healthcare Workers That Take Care of Us (Paid Advertisement)

Healthcare institutions are facing an enormous uphill battle to keep and recruit talent into their four walls. With job demands high even post pandemic, employees have had time to reflect on what’s important to them in their work-life balance and many are choosing a different path for a variety of reasons. For some it’s pay and benefits, schedule flexibility, or simply burnout, but healthcare workers are and have opted out. The good news is that there are record numbers of new applicants to nursing programs and physician programs. So how can clinics and institutions retain and attract the talent they need?

Join a CNA Advisory & Networking Team (ANT) Today

In an effort to bring more value to CNA membership, increase member engagement, and bring a larger voice to the nursing profession in Colorado, CNA has created 5 new Advisory & Networking Teams (ANTs).

The goal of these teams is to provide space for our members to connect with other like-minded members in the area that most fits their passion for nursing. These teams will serve as advisors for GAPP, the Board of Directors and others when determining position statements, legislative priorities, public comment, future legislative drafts, upcoming events, social media content, continued education and strategic initiatives of the organization. 

Here are CNA's  5 Advisory & Networking Teams:

  • New Graduate (Recently graduated nurses who are in the first 3 years of their nursing career.)​
  • Rural Nursing (Nurses who work in sparsely populated and underserved geographical locations, including support for the unique challenges of rural care.)​
  • Nurse Educators/Professional Development (Ensuring the delivery of quality care to citizens by fostering and advancing the professional and educational development of nurses to the end that all people may have better nursing care.)​
  • Workplace Advocacy (Nurses interested in improving the workplace environment including areas such as violence, safe staffing and risk management.)​
  • Nursing Research (Nurses interested in all levels of healthcare-related research; health-related data collection that supports evidence-based practice and policy.)​

Whether you have a mild interest, are an expert, or looking to learn more, your participation and insight will bring value and success to these teams.

Public Health Emergency ANA Impact Survey

March 24, 2023

The Public Health Emergency (PHE) that was activated at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic will end on May 11, 2023. The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2023 extended many of the telehealth flexibilities authorized during the PHE through 2024.  Waivers which allowed Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs) to practice to the full scope of their license are slated to expire May 11, 2023.

ANA continues to advocate to members of Congress, the White House, and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, to take action to extend these waivers which have benefited vulnerable patients who struggle to access healthcare.


ANA has a short form at , and encourages Nurses to share how these waivers have helped patients gain access to the care they would not have otherwise received.  

ANA will use these stories to communicate with policymakers the reasons these waivers need to be made permanent,  and the negative consequences for patients should the waivers be allowed to expire.   Nurses' voices are critical, as we cannot allow our nation’s health care to go backward.

Below are the expiring waivers of most concern:

  • Physician Services. 42 CFR §482.12(c)(1)–(2) and §482.12(c)(4): Waiving requirements that Medicare patients admitted to a hospital be under the care of a physician, allowing APRNs to practice to the top of their licensure, and authorizing hospitals to optimize their workforce strategies.
  • Responsibilities of Physicians in Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs). 42 CFR § 485.631(b)(2): Making the physician physical presence waiver permanent allows certain APRNs in CAHs to practice to the full extent of their education, clinical training and licensure;  and enables the entire health care team to practice to its fullest capacity in provider shortage areas.
  • Rural Health Clinics (RHCs) and Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs): Physician Supervision of NPs in RHCs and FQHCs. 42 CFR 491.8(b)(1): Waiving the physician supervision of NPs in RHCs and FQHCs has provided workforce flexibility in rural and underserved communities where provider shortages have increased the most.
  • Anesthesia Services. 42 CFR §482.52(a)(5), §485.639(c) (2), and §416.42 (b)(2): Allowing certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNA), in accordance with a state emergency plan, to practice to the full extent of their license by permanently extending the CMS waiver removing physician supervision as a Condition of Participation.
