TNA and ANA also serve as watchdogs for the profession, guarding the welfare of patients by continual involvement in local, state, and national governmental affairs, including a full-time lobbying presence at the Tennessee Legislature and the U.S. Congress. Members, upon recommendation by TNA, are appointed to serve on policy-making boards and commissions at all levels of government.
TNA is committed to providing a well-rounded selection of continuing education activities that meet the needs for professional development of registered nurses throughout the state. TNA is accredited by the American Nurses Credentialing Center as a provider and approver of continuing nursing education.
