During the American Nurses Association (ANA) Biennial House of Delegates meeting this past June, Karen Daley, a doctoral student at the Connell School, was elected to serve a two-year term on the ANA Board of Directors. Daley was one of 30 candidates that vied for various leadership positions during ANA's 2008 elections, held in Washington, DC. Daley was also appointed by the ANA to a seat on the American Nurses Credentialing Center Board of Directors.

The ANA is the only full-service professional organization representing the interests of the nation’s 2.9 million registered nurses through 54 constituent member nurses associations. The ANA advances the nursing profession by fostering high standards of nursing practice, promoting the rights of nurses in the workplace, projecting a positive and realistic view of nursing, and by lobbying Congress and regulatory agencies on health care issues affecting nurses and the public.

In response to her election, Daley comments that, "there are many critical issues facing ANA, not the least of which is the need to grow the membership of ANA and to expand the influence of nursing across policy and political arenas. I look forward to the opportunity to serve as a member of the ANA Board of Directors and to contribute to those dialogues and decision-making processes."
