Welcome

The Home Healthcare Nurses Association (HHNA) is an affiliate national professional nursing organization of the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC). HHNA was rescued by NAHC to recruit and bring together home care and hospice nurses so they may speak out on behalf of their specialty, the nursing profession and the patients they serve. The HHNA also serves as an advisory resource to NAHC on issues of importance to home care and hospice nurses. The HHNA chair holds a seat on the NAHC Board of Directors to represent the NAHC Nursing Section
