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 and State Nurses Association (C/SNA) of the American Nurses' Association (ANA).
ANA Issues Position Statement on Immunizations
ANA strongly recommends that all registered nurses, health care workers and the public be vaccinated against COVID-19. There is significant clinical evidence on the safety and effectiveness of the three approved COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson/Janssen) being administered under the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Emergency Use Authorization process. With regard to these three vaccines, ANA does not support any exemptions other than for medical contraindications to being vaccinated against COVID-19. See full position statement linked below
NHNA is happy to be partnering with Prudential Financial Wellness to offer 2 upcoming Financial Wellness Series'. One for student nurses/recent graduates and one for nurses who may be near retirement. More information to come.

New Hampshire Tickborne Diseases
Tickborne diseases (TBDs) are increasing nationally with Lyme disease accounting for 82% of all TBDs in the U.S. (MMWR. 2018 May;67(17):496-501).
