The Visiting Nurse Associations of America (VNAA) was established in 1983 as the official, national association of freestanding, not-for-profit, community based visiting nurse agencies (VNAs). VNAA leads a profession that is more than a century old - a profession that VNAs actually helped create. Today, by linking leading not-for-profit home health care agencies from coast to coast and creating a comprehensive brand identity program, VNAA has created a powerful network for growth and development. One that will continue to enhance and support the delivery of home health care for the next one hundred years.
