TNA is pleased to announce the TNA & TSNA Joint Annual Conference, Advocacy in Action. We will get you moving with Zumba sessions on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Membership Assembly will offer you the opportunity to have your voice heard as we debate healthcare issues and make decisions for the direction of the association and nursing. You will not want to miss the interactive poster session and, of course, there will be plenty of general sessions to help you improve and stay inspired as a leader! There will be much to do, much to learn and new friends to make and don’t be surprised if TNPAC has something special in store!  Come and join students and nurses, old and new, to make new acquaintances, to catch-up with old friends, or to mentor a new nurse.



The Tennessee Nurses Association Nominating Committee is actively seeking nominations for several positions that will be open for election on the TNA ballot at Membership Assembly on October 26th through 28th.  Nomination to one of the Board of Directors’ positions allows you the opportunity to make a difference in your state professional association.  YOU are the Voice of TNA!

I encourage ALL of you who are interested in serving on the Board of Directors to fill out the Call for Candidates form and submit by email to Diane Cunningham at
