Leaders and Legends of Texas Nursing

We are able to focus on current policy initiatives because of the many who paved the way to this point. This event – often referred to as the Legacy Banquet- is an opportunity to recognize members of Texas Nurses Association who have personified TNA’s mission. These nurses advocated for and advanced the profession through their life’s work and it is our privilege to recognize their contributions.
