TNA & the History of Nursing in Texas
The Texas Nurses Association goes way back all the way to 1907 when 19 Texas nurses met to organize a state association of graduate nurses in El Paso. It was expanded to include and advocate for all nurses. TNA played a pivotal role in first establishing nurse licensure, standards of practice, educational curriculum, and fundamental protections for nurses and patients in Texas ever since.
