Philippine Nurses Association of the Philippines (PNA)

Founded on September 2, 1922 as Filipino Nurses Association (FNA) in a meeting of 150 nurses presided by then Anastacia Giron Tupas (Mrs. Tupas), the FNA was incorporated in 1924. The International Council of Nurses accepted the FNA as one of the member organizations during the Congress held in Montreal, Canada on July 8-13, 1929. The FNA became the PNA (Philippine Nurses Association) in 1966, which was the same year that the office at 1663 F.T. Benitez Street, Malate, Manila was inaugurated.

The PNA is the only accredited professional organization recognized by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC). Registered Nurses are mandated by Republic Act 9173 (Philippine Nursing Act of 2002) to be a member of the PNA to be able to practice their profession in the Philippines.
