The Florida Nurses Leadership Academy (FNLA) is a partnership program of the Florida Nurses Association (FNA) and the Florida Nurses Foundation (FNF) with the purpose of developing future nursing leaders. The goal is to provide tools, education and opportunities to new graduates to assist them in becoming active members and skillful leaders in their professional organization.
