Dedicated to promoting excellence in nursing and healthcare through leadership, advocacy and innovation.



Nurses shaping health care for the future.

Texas Nurses Association District 5 (TNA5) is a regional chapter of a state-wide membership-based association of registered nurses (TNA). 

Founded in 1907, TNA is the oldest professional nursing association in Texas. Our members represent all segments of nursing practice, from bedside to administration, consulting to advanced practice, and education to legislation. They're from all practice settings: hospital, home and community health, public health, higher education, long-term care, school health, and policy. And all practice areas.
