There is a plethora of Nursing Organizations in the twenty-first century. Each of them has a separate role, vision, and mission. There are three types of Professional Nursing Organizations: National, State, and International. National Nursing Organizations are intended to resolve various health problems and provide treatment to people who require medical assistance (Goolsby & Dubois, 2017). This category includes such non-profit companies as American Nurses Association (ANA), Emergency Nurses Association (ENA), NAPNAP Foundation, and many others. State Nursing Organizations’ activities are aimed at resolving different health issues or diseases that are prevalent in the region of their situations (Roux & Halstead, 2017).
This category includes Tampa Bay Simulation Network, Central Alabama Nurse Practitioner Association, and others. International Nursing non-profit companies are the most important organizations as they are involved in different medical processes around the world. For instance, they were expected to stop the diffusion of the Ebola virus in the USA. The following presentation will discuss the importance of nursing organizations and is intended to compare three different associations from International, State, and National spheres.
The Comparison of Nursing Organizations
Three different nursing organizations from various locations have been chosen for the following comparison: American Nurses Association (ANA), Tampa Bay Advanced Practice Nurses Council (TBAPNC), and International Association for Human Caring (IAHC). To support the advancement of professional nursing, it would be proper to mention that every non-profit company mentioned above gives additional knowledge and experience to the nurses who already work in hospitals (Kearney-Nunnery, 2016). Participants of such organizations have more opportunities in their career growth as these workers represent their medical institutions on the global (national or state) level and participate in different activities that improve the rates of health and longevity in their regions (Roux & Halstead, 2017). For instance, ANA is involved in the popularization of the Affordable Care Act reform.
The ANA organization focuses on nurses’ education as medical colleges do not provide all the information that might be useful in the professional practice. In turn, TBAPNS specializes in the local issues of citizens who live in the state of Florida. IAHC concentrates its colleagues’ attention on the importance of leadership as this quality is essential in the international nursing relationships with other countries (Goolsby & Dubois, 2017). Every PNO develops and implements new technologies in hospitals to make various treatment processes more efficient and less harmful to its patients. Each of the aforementioned non-profit organizations has different duties and responsibilities (Roux & Halstead, 2017). Although there are many PNO’s in the United States of America, their activities are appreciated by the government and the populations who benefit from the medical personnel’s help.
The importance of joining PNO’s
It is essential for young nurses to join Professional Organizations (PNO) as this activity might help them gain more experience and professional knowledge that might be useful in their future careers. Moreover, various hospitals are likely to promote nurses who demonstrate that they are active and strive to make the environment better (Roux & Halstead, 2017). One’s nursing skills might also improve during the work in a certain PNO (Kearney-Nunnery, 2016). It is advantageous for young specialists to get acquainted with experienced colleagues and consider their pieces of advice. Nevertheless, if a person is a member of some PNO, he or she helps the country by assisting the government in coping with different medical issues and viruses.
Becoming a member of PNO
Members of PNO’s (Professional Nursing Organizations) should seek methods of improving the national healthcare system because only they know what factors lack improvements and what objects require additional attention. It is essential to make patients satisfied with the treatment they receive (Goolsby & Dubois, 2017). By improving the quality of medical procedures, nurses make the world better as other people become happy and joyful during their healing periods (Roux & Halstead, 2017). Professional Nursing Organizations play a significant role in the country’s appearance as professionals in this field demonstrate their skills in scientific researches and other activities that influence average rates of longevity and health conditions of American residents.
Magnet Recognition Program
Magnet Recognition program was established by ANA to make young and ambitious nurses interested in the opportunities that this organization offered. There are many beneficial factors of Magnet designation. This program is intended to improve the quality of healthcare services in the country by attracting new colleagues who strive to develop and make their environments better (Kearney-Nunnery, 2016). The main purpose of the Magnet program is to help young nurses socialize in their professional culture and become successful in this sphere. ANA addresses such qualities of the program’s participants as the creative approach to their jobs and development of their professional skills to make patients satisfied with the medical treatment they obtain.
As it is mentioned above, every nursing organization has its goals that aim at improving health care services in the United States of America. It would be proper to stress that international PNO’s consist of professionals from different countries who discuss global issues. Moreover, some organizations consult people who suffer from certain diseases (Goolsby & Dubois, 2017). For instance, their researches are usually published on scientific websites that are constantly read by people who seek answers to certain medical questions. Therefore, Professional Nursing Organizations are useful for modern society and the world’s medicine in general (Roux & Halstead, 2017).
Also, these non-profit companies are always open to new colleagues that want to develop and be active leaders of their countries’ healthcare systems. It would be proper to mention that the USA is the leading country in the sphere of PNO’s. Therefore, it helps other states to establish similar departments as they let foreign medical personnel to be involved in solving global problems in the sphere of nursing.
Professional Nursing Organizations are intended to popularize the movement of healthy culture. Many young nurses are encouraged to participate PNO’s as there are many opportunities for ambitious people and medical workers who want to make their countries and the entire world better. PNO’s make different researches that they publish in scholarly journals and on their official websites. This activity helps nursing practitioners in treating particular diseases that present certain difficulties. Moreover, Professional Nursing Organizations raise students’ interests to the occupation that might give them a chance to become successful and useful for other people.
