Since 1904, the Connecticut Nurses Association (CNA) has been the only professional organization in our state specifically for registered nurses, regardless of practice setting. Our goal is to strengthen and protect the viability of the nursing profession and enhance health care for our communities through our advocacy work at the local, state, and national levels.
Nursing best practices and standards of care are dynamic and constantly evolving, responding to the changing needs of society, expanding scientific knowledge, and emerging technologies. To support professional and educational advancement of nurses, CNA is an ANCC accredited provider of continuing nursing education. Through our advocacy and educational work, CNA is there to help shape the future of nursing and to support the health of our state.
In the event that the novel coronavirus crisis worsens, CT needs the help of additional qualified health professionals and related professionals to supplement our hospital capacity on a temporary basis to treat seriously ill coronavirus patients including those that may need critical care.
