Welcome to ANA Massachusetts!   

Who We Are...

NPR Safe Handling Series

As a strong advocate for safe workplaces for registered nurses, ANA Massachusetts has been tuned in intently to the
National Public Radio series on nursing injuries. Our parent organization, ANA, assisted NPR by providing background information and coordinating interviews for the four-part series, which kicked off this week and continues every Wednesday in February.
We encourage ANA Massachusetts members to educate themselves about the risks associated with lifting and moving patients, to share information on ways to prevent injuries on the job; and to advocate for a safe workplace for all nurses and health care workers.  Please click here for resources on safe patient handling.
