Please answer two questions.
1. The ANA’s Principles of Environmental Health For Nursing Practice states “Nurses have a right to work in an environment that is safe and healthy” (p. 16). After reviewing this document, I would like you to consider your own work environment.
In this week’s forum, discuss an element of your work environment that could potentially violate your right to work in a safe and healthy environment. What steps have been taken to ensure the environment remains safe and healthy?
2. Identify the top three priority areas in which nurses should be advocating for change, reform, further research, and/or innovation and provide a rationale for your choices.
