Want to help develop TNA nursing and healthcare policy?

The 2017-2019 Texas Nurses Association Policy Council was appointed by TNA’s Board of Directors in July and met in early fall to determine the committees it would need to address the nursing and healthcare issues facing Texas over the next two years.


The seven established Policy Council Committees are:

  • APRN
  • Nursing Education
  • End of Life
  • Maternal Mortality and Morbidity
  • Mental Health
  • Nursing Regulation
  • Workplace Advocacy

Over the next six to seven months, these groups will explore and develop policy on some of the most pressing issues related to each committees’ area of professional practice, and TNA would like as much input from its members as possible. Therefore, TNA Expert Advisor groups have been created for each of the above committees to assist with the research that the committees will be engaged in.



What is a TNA Expert Advisor?


An expert advisor engages in nursing policy, with zero time commitment and travel requirements, by agreeing to receive periodic emails from TNA about the selected committee meetings’ agendas. We will ask expert advisors (via email) to submit any comments, questions, or thoughts you may have on the topics set out in the agenda that you think the committee should consider or discuss. It’s TNA’s no-nonsense way of crowdsourcing discussion on nursing topics that matter to you.


If you are a TNA member and would like to be an expert advisor for any of the TNA Policy Council committees, please visit this link and indicate the committee(s) that you are interested in.


The Policy Council committees are holding their first meetings in November to get to know each other and the issues, so if you’re interested in sharing your knowledge and experience, please sign up to become a TNA Expert Advisor today!
