ANA 2004 House of Delegates Resolution: Environmental Health Principles in Nursing Practice

In 2004, the American Nurses Association resolved that the ANA would provide leadership for nurses and the profession by developing environmental health principles that are based on the Precautionary Principle; and that the ANA would collaborate with nursing and other relevant organizations to actively support public policy that endorses these principles; and that the ANA would urge state and local nursing organizations to lobby their state and local governments to adopt the Precautionary Principle.
