Proposed Update to Legislative Platform

The Legislative Platform is a series of statements that serves as ANA-Illinois’ official record of positions on legislative issues and is the guide for the association’s advocacy efforts.  It contains seven sections:

  • Access to Quality Care
  • Funding Nursing Education and Research
  • Financing Health Care
  • Advance the Profession of Nursing
  • Public Health
  • Human Rights
  • Disaster and Pandemic Preparedness

Every 3 years the Legislative Committee reviews the platform and makes recommendations for edits that are then voted on by the membership.


Reminder – Voting for the ratification of the Legislative Platform will occur via electronic/online voting. Watch for information about the 2022 ANA-Illinois election, bylaws, and Legislative Platform vote that will be disseminated when voting opens on September 17th.
