We're an advocacy organization by trade…

But every once in a while we need to take a break to remember how to have fun, to laugh, to be entertained, and as a Burger King commericial said, "salute our frontline heroes and all you 'couch potatriots.'"

So we're taking a step back from Coronavirus and other pressing issues. Instead we're giving you comedy, memes, songs, and shows all about nursing! After all, positive mental health is needed in times like these...

We'll return this week with a recap of advocacy actions ANA\California has taken in the past few weeks and what we're working on next.

Please note: All following content and posts are strictly for fun and entertainment. ANA\California is in no way associated or in contract with any third-parties listed below, and thus, content may not reflect our values or mission. Enjoy!
