- About TNA/TNF
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--and 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 encouraged 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 districts.
