Greetings from the NNCA President

March 2016


Happy Spring Everyone! According to Punxsutawney Phil, we are going to have an early one. How fitting as we head to Newport for our Homecoming Reunion. For three of us, this will be our last board meeting. JoAnn Smith, Dan Wasneechak, and I will roll off of the Board after our annual membership meeting in May. I have had an awesome experience and I am looking forward to staying involved with NNCA activities as we continue to move towards being “recognized as the preferred organization for promoting the Navy Nurse Corps legacy through camaraderie, mentorship, and historical preservation.” Thanks to all NNCA members, chapters, and national committees for all that you do to help us realize this vision.  Read more . . . .

Who We Are….

Established in 1987, the Navy Nurse Corps Association is a non-profit, national organization dedicated to bringing Navy Nurses together. We are an association for caring and sharing, where what matters most is not rank, but being, or having been, a Navy Nurse. Any Navy Nurse Corps Officer, whether Active Duty, Reserves, Retired, or Honorably Discharged, may join the NNCA.
