ANA's 2023 impact in 10 key numbers

The ANA Enterprise had a tangible influence on the profession last year through its education, advocacy and policy work, according to the organization's 2023 Annual Impact Report.

The report, published March 18, outlines key efforts to support nurses and advance the profession from the American Nurses Association, American Nurses Credentialing Center and the American Nurses Foundation. 

In 2023, the entities: 

  • Welcomed 40,000 new ANA members.

  • Delivered leadership, innovation and ethics education to 235,000 nurses.

  • Committed $200,000 to support 10 projects aimed at dismantling racism in nursing.

  • Reached more than 520,000 nurses and healthcare leaders with content about addressing racism.

  • Allocated $5.5 million to back four innovative nurse-led projects under the Reimagining Nursing Initiative. These projects aim to demonstrate nurses' contributions to healthcare, a crucial step toward securing reimbursement for nursing care, the association said.

  • Enhanced the ability of more than 10,000 nurses to identify health disparities and social determinants of health.

  • Had 21,000 nurses complete Project Firstline modules on infection prevention. 

  • Issued 16 recommendations and 65 actions via its Nurse Staffing Task Force.

"It's a tremendous honor to serve the nation’s more than 5 million nurses — the heartbeat of our healthcare system — for all the work they do and for all they have to endure," ANA Acting CEO/CNO Debbie Hatmaker, PhD, RN, said in a news release. "Through our advocacy, we look forward to delivering a brighter future to our nurses within an equitable, more diverse, and technologically advanced health care system."
