The National Alaska Native American Indian Nurses Association (NANAINA)
Welcome to our website. NANAINA is a committed group of persons from every corner of the country, dedicated to the health and well-being of the American Indian and Alaska Native people. Some of us are ourselves American Indian, Alaska Native, some not. We are nurses, non-nurses, serving or not in communities and programs for American Indians and Alaska Natives. Regardless, we hope you will join us in our cause, our endeavors to raise the health of our people and to advance our profession.
NANAINA exemplifies excellence in nursing through outreach, self-determination, and research by using traditions and innovation to achieve health equity.
NANAINA unites American Indian/ Alaska Native (AI/AN) nurses and those who care for AN/AI people to improve the health and well-being of AI/AN people.
Integrity, respect and spirituality will guide NANAINA throughout the generations.
