From the desk of Agnes Therady, President

On behalf of the Governing Board of the National Association of Indian Nurses of America (NAINA), I am pleased to share this message with you. 

To all our members from our 16 chapters across USA, thank you for being part of this great association, you are the strength of NAINA.

It is my honor and privilege to serve you as the 7th President of NAINA, the foremost organization for all professional nurses of Asian Indian heritage in the US since 2006.

I was excited to meet so many of you during our outstanding 6th Biennial National Conference in October 2018 in Dallas, Texas.

A new year holds the promise of new opportunities and challenges. As we look to the future, I am confident that we can work together to improve our lives and that of others, innovate our practice, and rise to the top as authentic leaders and exceptional nurses. We will provide need-based, advanced continuing education, support nursing research and scholarly publication for our members who are interested to pursue these goals. We will also invest in our student nurses through scholarship, mentorship, career counseling and role-modeling. At NAINA, everyone matters.

True to our mission and vision, we will volunteer to promote the health and well-being of our communities because our communities matter.

The success of NAINA is largely driven by the dedication and commitment of its members, their countless hours of selfless service and hard work. I applaud everyone who contributed generously for NAINA’s impressive growth from its humble beginning in 2006 to where it is now. It is my sincere hope that we will continue to support and proudly preserve it as the professional organization of choice for all Asian Indian nurses in the US.

Looking forward to an exceptional two years of service to you.

Love and blessings!
