These funds pay for administrative costs such as staff salaries and benefits, maintenance of the building, program services, publications and nurse advocacy activities.

As a courtesy, all Florida nurses receive The Florida Nurse, the official quarterly publication of FNA. Full members of the association also receive The American Nurse (ANA) & Members Only newsletters. There are also frequent online communications to keep nurses informed about their profession and to give nurses opportunities to participate in the work of the association.
