Do you think it is important for nurses to be involved in their professional organizations?
Why or why not?
The involvement of nurses in professional organizations is very important for their career
development and their performance of nursing duties. Professional organizations like the
American Nursing Association are important because they participate in the improvement of the
quality of healthcare standards in the country (Weiss, Tappen & Grimley, 2019). Professional
organizations participate in measures to improve the practice of nursing and therefore benefit not
only the nurses but also the patients. For instance, when professional organizations advocate for
high standards of training, they help nurses to achieve better chances of career development and
also improve the quality of care that people get from the nurses. Professional organizations also
push to making healthcare services more available to consumers of care. For instance, they may
advocate for laws that are meant to make healthcare not only affordable to the people but more
accessible. Also, organizations like ANA advocate for the rights of nurses (Weiss, Tappen &
Grimley, 2019). Such professional organizations advocate for policy changes that seek to
