Amplifying Your Voice
We ensure your voice - the voice of nursing - is heard in Richmond! VNA advocates for nurses, the nursing profession, and quality health care for all Virginians. 

Fostering Partnerships
Advancing healthcare in our state does not occur in a vacuum, so whenever possible, we partner with specialty nursing organizations, healthcare associations, and hospitals. 

Top Priorities
This year, we're working to ensure that:
  • advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) can contribute to the healthcare solution by practicing to their full scope of education and training.
  • Virginia’s youth is healthy, safe, and ready to learn by improving students’ access to school nurses 
  • nurses support legislative solutions that create and sustain conditions that support the health and well-being of all Virginians.

Endorsement and Promotion Policy
VNA does not endorse or support specific candidates or legislators. As a member benefit, we provide our members with information on events in their local area. We encourage our members to meet their current legislators and candidates running for office in their local area to discuss issues that impact the nursing profession. We geotarget our candidate and legislator event notifications in the following ways: If a candidate or legislator is having an event in their district, we notify our members who reside in that district. If a candidate or legislator is having an event outside their district, we notify members who live in the chapter closest to the event. If you are a candidate or legislator with an upcoming event in Virginia you'd like to share, please contact Payton Drake.
