Welcome to IANANT!
From the desk of the President
RN, MSN, OCN, CMSRN
Dear IANANT family,
It is my honor and privilege to serve as the President of the Indian American Nurses Association of North Texas (IANANT). I stand on the shoulders of great visionaries who have brought this organization to its present level. At this time, I want to acknowledge the founding members of IANANT; a group of nurses of Indian heritage who came together and established themselves as a voice to be heard and force to be reckoned with.
Indian American Nurses Association of North Texas (IANANT) expresses its shock and grief over the unexpected tragedy that caused the loss of our nursing colleagues at Methodist Dallas Hospital. The entire IANANT family grieves this loss, and we extend our condolences and prayers to the families of the victims and to the entire Methodist family.
IANANT stands in solidarity with the nurses at Methodist health systems and we strongly urge the legislators to make nurses and health care workers safety a priority.
Workplace violence has been steadily on the rise since the pandemic. A recent Press Ganey report showed that, on average, two nurses were assaulted every hour in the second quarter of 2022 which translates to about 57 assaults per day across the U.S. Therefore, legislators need to prioritize caregiver safety and set the expectation that violence on the job it’s not acceptable.
At this time the entire Indian American Nursing community in Texas stand together with our colleagues in Dallas offering our unwavering support.
HAPPY NURSES WEEK!
