The Texas Nurses Association (TNA) is a statewide membership-based professional association of licensed nurses. Founded in 1907, TNA is the oldest and largest nursing association in Texas.
Our members represent all segments of nursing practice, bedside to administration, consulting to advanced practice, and education to legislation. TNA members come from all practice settings: Hospital, home and community health, public health, higher education, long-term care, school health, and policy.
As diverse as they are, TNA members share a common purpose: Advancing excellence in nursing. It's a pursuit that requires commitment, involvement, and leadership - fortunately, these are inherent traits of nurses.
TNA is not a union. We are a voluntary organization that works with everyone to get good things accomplished for nurses and their patients.
Every member is encourage to get involved. TNA is governed by a House of Delegates (HOD). The HOD meets annually and is made up of delegates representing TNA's 28 statewide districts.
