The Texas Capitol in Austin may seem a world away from a nurse's day-to-day practice. To TNA, it’s practically home. TNA spends significant time at the Capitol advocating for nurses, the nursing profession, and quality health care for all Texans. TNA also monitors and works with the Texas Board of Nursing, other government agencies, partner nursing specialty groups, and hospitals and physician groups whenever possible.

About the Interim

Even though the Texas Legislature only meets for six months of every two years, our work never stops. During the eighteen months between legislative sessions, TNA works diligently to review and update our policy positions through a dedicated network of nurse members. The TNA Policy Council develops policy positions through multiple issue-based committees and expert advisors, and issues are fully vetted over the course of the interim to end up in the TNA Policy Book.

This interim, we will be focusing on APRN issues, Nursing Education, Workplace Advocacy, Regulatory issues, and Maternal Mortality.

In addition, we will explore the ever-changing role of nurses in the new millennium and how we can find what it is that makes nurses unique to the health care experience and cement nursing in that role.

To get involved in the conversations, please fill out this form to become an expert advisor, and help us fully explore all of the issues that relate to nursing.
