Connecting Nurses Together
It is our goal at the Philippine Nurses Association of New York, Inc. to unite all Filipino nurses in New York City and to promote the highest standards of professional quality practice, educational and cultural advancement, and socio-economic stability for our nurses.

At the Philippine Nurses Association of New York Inc., we advocate for the rights and interests of our Filipino-American nurses residing in places like New York City. We look at legislation that affects nursing practices while inspecting immigration issues that impact these hardworking nurses. We offer educational programs, as well as community outreach in the Filipino-American community, to make the jobs and lives of these people easier.
We were initially organized by a handful of civic-spirited and visionary nurses from the Philippines in 1929 while residing at the International House in New York. Since the Association's founding, the Philippine Nurses Association of New York, Inc. has continued to champion the causes of Filipino nurses. To this day, we pursue these traditions as the voice for thousands of Filipino registered nurses in the tri-state area.
Our team studies, discusses, and exchanges information regarding problems and issues relevant to nursing practices, education, and research through networking with other professional nursing organizations. We continue to provide training designed to assist nursing practitioners in identifying and fulfilling their career goals, professional responsibilities, and cultural adjustments.
You can count on us to secure and support legislation that would improve and enhance the practice of nursing as defined in New York State and to participate in community activities that will enhance the purpose and objectives of the association.
