Bay Area Navy Nurse Corps Association
Includes Northern California and Nevada
The origins of the Chapter began in 1980 under the guidance of Rachel Todd, centered on nurses from Naval Hospital Oakland “Oak Knoll Hospital.” Following establishment of the national Navy Nurse Corps Association in 1987, BANNCA hosted the National Conference in Oakland in 1990.
Through Chapter activities, BANNCA will:
- Foster social networking and collegiality among current and former Navy Nurses
- Promote and enhance the image of Navy Nurses in the community
- Provide opportunities for group service projects with fellow members, with emphasis on beneficiaries who are current and former members of the US Uniformed Services and their families
- Share information of interest to members about regional activities relevant to Navy, military nursing, Veterans, and other local Veteran Service Organizations
- Support the mission and goals of NNCA
Projects and Engagement
The chapter traditionally holds two General Membership luncheon meetings a year, in June and December. Recent meetings have included guided tours of area Military Landmarks, Speakers on current Navy Nurse international deployments, and presentations on Veteran and historical topics. Service Projects throughout the year target local military members and families, and the legacy and traditions of Navy Nursing.
