A new dawn regarding environmental health in the US and, in fact, globally has arrived. The public awareness and interest in all things “green” is creating a demand for nurses to understand the relationship between human health and the environments in which we live, learn, work, and play. Acceptance beyond questioning the science of whether we are in environmental health peril to almost unanimous consensus acknowledges the need to act and act now on many of the risks people are experiencing. Nurses, who are one of the most trusted sources of information by the public, must be in a position to both respond to questions about the environment and its relationship to health with credible, evidence-based information, as well as provide leadership in making the necessary changes in our policies and practices. To that end nurses must have knowledge that is a cut above the average citizen with regard to environmental health issues. The Mission of ANHE: Promoting healthy people and healthy environments by educating and leading the nursing profession, advancing research, incorporating evidence-based practice, and influencing policy.
