As a professional organization, we are aiming to uphold the image of Chinese American Nurses as a professional group, improve the quality of health care, facilitate community health services, and advocate the welfare of the Chinese American Nurses and the population they served.

Mission

The mission of the CANA is to establish an organization to recognize professional Chinese American nurses, and carry out activities on their behalf. In collaboration with other health care organizations, its goal is to promote quality health care services to the community.
