GNA President's Message



On behalf of the Georgia Nurses Association, I am honored to serve as your President for the next two years! My Board of Directors and I are here to advocate for you as you advocate for your patients, families, communities, and other groups.


GNA is the state's largest professional nursing association for all registered nurses in all practice settings. Established in 1907, GNA has been the strongest voice for nurses in Georgia, advocating for the nursing profession at the state and federal levels. GNA leaders are constantly seeking innovative ways to engage our members. We strive to promote a collective voice on issues surrounding nursing and healthcare.


I encourage current members to stay engaged and potential members to consider joining. For both current and potential members, think about these questions - What is your commitment to your professional association? How can your skill set, your leadership style, and your power potential, working collaboratively through GNA, enable nurses to lead change to advance health? What will prompt you to be involved? How can the GNA Board assist you in moving our profession forward?


As always, I value YOUR input. As a continuing or potential member of the association, you do and can enhance the visibility and productivity of our work. Your personal skills and energies can make a difference. One of my personal goals is to connect with at least one nurse in each of Georgia’s 159 counties. My purpose is to develop a network of nurses across the state for communication and collaboration on issues important to Georgia nurses and nursing practice.


For more information, contact GNA Headquarters at 404.325.5536 or visit our web site at .GNA has many membership options, including state only, combined GNA/ANA, and discounts for nurses who are over 62, new graduates, and RNs pursuing additional education.


Please let me know how I can help you to be involved. Be a part of GNA’s collective voice! I can be reached at
