Federal Government Affairs

The more than 49,000 members of the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists advance the interests of patient safety, access to healthcare, and cost-effective healthcare delivery through our advocacy agenda in Washington before Congress and the Administration. Our membership in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, and our Federal Government Affairs office in our Nation’s Capital, seek the highest levels of patient safety in anesthesia care and pain management, and promote federal policy initiatives intended to achieve those objectives.
