PPE Status Update ANA Survey on PPE 

In May, ANA heard from over 14,000 nurses that PPE remained in short supply and that nurses had concerns with the practices of reuse and decontamination. These survey results were broadly shared with legislative and regulatory agencies and gained significant media presence to give voice to the conditions that nurses are dealing with. 

Much has changed since May, but it is clear that the COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a major impact on nursing. The American Nurses Association (ANA) once again wants to understand nurses' access to and usage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) right now.  It is critical that we hear from you on the PPE situation you are experiencing in July. 

This survey is open to all nurses – ANA member and non-members. Please take a few minutes to complete this PPE survey.  Answer the questions describing the situation you faced in the last two weeks.

Thank you.
