Who We Are

PNAOhio is a chapter of the national organization the Philippine Nurses Association of America. We are a professional nursing organization that engages in volunteerism, education and human rights awareness on behalf of  Filipino nurses. We partner with other professional and cultural Filipino organizations in Northeast Ohio. We welcome practicing nurses, retired nurses and student nurses. Our memberships include associate nurses who are not of Philippine origin but who wish to be members of a nursing organization for the professional benefits. PNAO members work at the bedside, in management, research and academia. We enjoy the benefits of a large network of Filipino nurses across America whose goal is to provide the best care and to attain the highest standards as licensed registered nurses in America. At the national level we also have an APRN group for certified registered nurse clinicians.
