Dear ANA-Michigan Members, Friends, and Supporters,


After careful consideration regarding the elevated concerns of COVID-19/Coronavirus, the American Nurses Association - Michigan (ANA-MI) has made the necessary and responsible decision to cancel the 2020 Annual Conference scheduled for March 25-26 in Lansing, MI.


ANA-Michigan’s decision is based on the latest reports from the World Health Organization (WHO) and recommendations from Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS).

New!  ANA-Michigan Violence Against Nurses:  Casualties of Caring
Embassy Suites | Livonia, MI

Nurses are on the front line of healthcare and often bear the brunt of physical and verbal abuse from patients and families. Nationally more than 20% of nurses and nursing students report that they have been physically assaulted and more than half report experiencing verbal abuse. This one-day conference will begin to address the increasing frequency of violence against nurses and other healthcare providers in Michigan. 


The program will address:

  1. Scope of the problem in nationally and in Michigan
  2. Nurses sharing their experiences from a variety of practice areas
  3. Promising strategies to reduce verbal and physical violence  
  4. National and state advocacy efforts
