Greetings from the NNCA President
Greetings NNCA and Happy Fall! Fall is a season of change across most of the United States and is marked by transition from summer to winter with the shifting of foliage colors from luscious greens to beautiful orange and browns. Fall is also a season of change in the NNCA as we transition from a focus on our annual membership drive, welcoming new and returning NNCA members, to the election of three new Board of Director members who will accept leadership roles in helping to preserve the legacy and traditions of the Navy Nurse Corps. This fall season also brings the excitement and busyness of preparing for our 2016 Homecoming Reunion in beautiful, nostalgic, Newport, Rhode Island. 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.
