Kentucky Nurses Association

The Kentucky Nurses Association (KNA) was established in 1906 to become the voice for all Registered Nurses across the state of Kentucky. As a constituent member of the American Nurses Association (ANA), this organization promotes the role of RNs in today’s health care system as well as advocating on behalf of patients.

The organization states as their mission:

“The mission of the Kentucky Nurses Foundation is to promote the highest level of health for the citizens of the Commonwealth of Kentucky by advancing the practice of nursing through nursing scholarship and healthcare research.”

KNA Membership

Nurses throughout the state can benefit from membership in the Kentucky Nurses Association regardless of specialty area and practice settings. And the greater number of members, the more influence KNA can have on state and national legislation and health care policy.

There are many other membership benefits. In addition to full-time lobbying in Frankfurt and Washing, DC, the KNA and ANA provide members with access to member only sections of their sites, conventions, and continuing education opportunities. Members have the opportunity to network with other nurses and grow their leadership skills by participating in committees and serving in elected positions within the organizations.
