The New Hampshire Nurses' Association is a not-for-profit membership association and the ONLY state organization that advocates for all nurses regardless of specialty or practice setting. Since its founding in 1906 by six forward-thinking nurses, NHNA has represented the nursing profession in N.H. through legislation, political action and professional development. We are a Constituent State Nurses Association (C/SNA) of the American Nurses' Association (ANA)

Throughout the year, NHNA hosts events for NH nurses.  In January the Commission on Government Affairs (CGA) host the Legislative Town Hall Forum.  Through a live webinar platform, NHNA shares information about bills before the NH legislator that will impact nurses, nursing practice and/or health care.  Members of the CGA present information regarding each of the identified bills, the pros and cons of the proposed legislation and the CGA position on the bill.  NHNA members then vote on the legislative priorities for the coming year.

In the spring the Commission on Nursing Practice host the Graduating Student Conference.  All nursing students scheduled to graduate that year are invited to attend this day long educational conference.  Invited speakers provide the nursing students with information on how to transition from nursing school into nursing practice.  Presentations include topics such as preparing for the nursing licensure exam, prepare for a job interview, the role of advocacy and professional organizations and many more topics.  Health care organizations from around the state are invited to attend to discuss job opportunities with the gathered students.

In June the CNP also host the Spotlight on Nursing.  The CNP selects two to three "hot" nursing topics to present at this event, which is held in Concord.  This past year, NHNA also offered this program online as well.

In the fall, NHNA host the Healthy Nurse Scholarship 5K and Health Fair.  This event is open to the public, both through participation in the 5K and to attend the health and wellness fair held at the finish line.  The proceeds from this event are used to provide scholarships for nurses enrolled in RN to BSN programs and/or who are pursing nursing certification.
