Janet Haebler, MSN, RN, Staffing, Past, Present and Future

As Senior Associate Director for Policy & State Government Affairs with the American Nurses Association (ANA), Janet serves as a resource to the state nurses associations in their efforts to advance their legislative and regulatory agendas.

Throughout her forty-eight years’ experience in nursing, Janet held numerous staff and leadership positions in a variety of settings: acute, long-term and home care, managed care, and academia. 

She has dedicated the past 18 years to the policy and advocacy arena; first at the state level, before joining ANA. While with the New York State Nurses’ Association, she was responsible for the Practice & Government Affairs program; during which time, Janet and her team celebrated such legislative successes as title “nurse” protection and safe patient handling & mobility.  In addition to a number of other initiatives, her portfolio includes the number one issue for direct care nurses – safe staffing.
