The Florida Nurses Association as a constituent of the American Nurses Association is the only nursing organization representing ALL of nursing regardless of specialty or practice area. We speak on behalf of nursing in Tallahassee as well as before many regulatory bodies. We partner with other organizations that share our vision to create a unified nursing advocacy program for nurses in our state. We are a strong voice for the nurses of Florida fueled by the strength and commitment of the professional nurses who comprise our membership.
The members of the FNA staff are committed to assisting leaders and members in implementing the goals and priorities of the Association as well as serving as a resource to nurses and nursing students. There are currently 6 staff members coordinating the work of all the departments of the association.
REGIONS: FNA has eight regions within its membership base, each representing particular geographic communities of the state. Each region has a director who coordinates local activities including continuing education offerings, community outreach projects, networking events and more. For more information, please visit our Regions Page.
SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS: Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are formed by members who wish to gather around a specific topic to inform, engage and take action. SIGs typically meet on a regular basis and often sponsor events such as webinars and conferences. Any member can initiate a SIG by recruiting at least ten interested members. Members can belong to multiple SIGs. For more information, please visit our Special Interest Groups Page.
LABOR RELATION UNITS: Where FNA represents Registered Nurses for collective bargaining there is a specific process in place for the election of officers, negotiating their contracts and dealing with workplace issues. Unit members also participate in all aspects of the association from local and community service projects to holding office at the state level. You may contact the Unit Presidents using the email addresses provided on this website.
