Welcome to GNA

Founded more than a century ago for the purpose of uniting our profession, GNA is the state's largest professional nursing association for registered nurses in all practice settings. GNA has provided enormous support to advance the profession as a whole and nurses as individuals.

Because the health care arena is in a continuing state of flux, nurses must speak with a collective voice. GNA is positioned to advocate for you while you advocate for your patients. Linked together, we can ensure nursing's agenda is heard in every arena.


 GNA at Work


GNA with Emory University Nursing Students



Special thanks to GNA Board member and Emory School of Nursing, Dr. Suzanne Staebler and the students in the NP program for donating their time to assemble materials for the 2017 Legislative Session.  In addition to students orchestrating an assembly line to fill GNA labeled bags with ibuprofen, band-aids, hand sanitizer and other small but often necessary items for legislators, students invited GNA to provide a briefing on advocacy.  GNA offered a high level primer on the importance of advocacy and that their practice environment will be shaped by what does or does not happen at the general assembly. Students offered great insight on ways to encourage nurses to become active in the state named association.  With students like this, Georgia will be well-cared for (provided we can keep them in state).


GNA at Grady Health Systems 2016 Nursing Perspectives Conference



GNA is very excited to have been invited to participate in the Grady Health Fair at Lake Lanier.  This event was among the first that GNA has engaged in in recent years to help get its name out as a strong membership organization.  During this event, GNA visited with more than 100 members and potential members.  These interactions allowed us to answer questions in real time about the organization and how we planned to move forward as a viable organization representing the interests of all nursing professionals.  We continue to share that GNA desires to be a forum for all professionals and we want to ensure that nursing organizations have spoken with one voice.  Without one voice, the profession will lose valuable time to have a positive impression on health care delivery and patient outcomes. Surrounded by other vendors and organizations, GNA has now begun providing basic takeaways like the specially branded bottles of water so that we can once again become a household name.  We sincerely hope that when events are presented at your hospital or in your community, you will consider inviting GNA to participate.


Senate Health & Human Services Chairperson at GNA Headquarters




Sen. Renee Unterman was recently invited to the GNA HQ for the first time.  She graciously accepted our invitation and GNA hosted a meet and greet for Sen. Unterman.  Several of the GNA/GNF Board members were present as well as officials from many of the surrounding healthcare facilities.  Sen. Unterman was very gracious with her time as GNF President, Catherine Futch provided a tour of the building and Sen. Unterman also hosted a question and answer session.
