Making Our Voices Heard

Making the Voice of Assisted Living Heard

Ensuring that the voice of assisted living nurses is heard loud and clear as a part of national policy discussions related to assisted living is a national priority for AALNA. In addition to facilitating discussions at the state level via our state leaders and chapters, AALNA participates in the following national committees and coalitions:

(CEAL) – The Center for Excellence in Assisted Living

CEAL is a non-profit collaborative of eleven national organizations. CEAL promotes high-quality assisted living, serves as a convener to bring together diverse stakeholders to discuss and examine issues related to assisted living as well as to help bridge research, practice and policies that foster quality and affordability, and maintains an objective national clearinghouse of information and resources about assisted living.
