HEAL / HONOR OUR NURSES CAMPAIGN




The Philippine Nurses Association of America and the Philippine Nurses Association of America Foundation, Inc. initiated the COVID-19 Task Force with the goal of assessing the overall state and well-being of our members and the impact of the pandemic to our nursing profession and the public.


The task force gathered the lived experiences of our frontline staff from different regions and chapters. The overall feedback matched descriptions of individuals who experienced psychological trauma associated with loss of lives and feelings of helplessness.  Some of our members reported exposure to COVID-19, being on quarantine and demands for and lack of personal protective equipment.

 SPECIAL FEATURE

The 2019-2021 PNAAF officers and trustees were inducted in front of the General Assembly during the 40th PNAA Anniversary Convention in Atlanta, Georgia. This group of men and women, who took the oath of office, take their roles and responsibilities to heart. The officers have the creativity and wisdom to lead the foundation and have un-wavering faith in the hearts of the members. They will continue to fulfill the mission of the foundation to "Promote and provide opportunities for philanthropy in support of professional advancement of all Filipino-American nurses and health for all through nursing care, education, scholarship,

management and research."

During the past four years, PNAAF officers and trustees, under the leadership of the indefatigable immediate past president Merlita Velasquez, were focused on the realization of the vision and dream of a permanent home for PNAA. Through the collaboration of PNAA and PNAAF, more than $1,000,000 contributions were generated to build the home we now have in New Brunswick, New Jersey, making the vision a reality. New Jersey is where PNAA started and now, New Jersey is where the PNAA/PNAAF Headquarters is located.
