The Connecticut Nurses' Association believes that nursing is an essential service in the health care delivery system and vital to the health status of people. The Connecticut Nurses' Association believes:

  • CNA exists to serve both the vital need of the individual nurse and the nursing profession.
  • CNA members are the foundation of the association. Their contribution of time, energy, ideas and support are critical to the success of CNA.
  • Participation in public policy and its generation is an essential responsibility of professional practice.
  • CNA has a responsibility for health care advocacy for the citizens of Connecticut.
  • The highest ethical standards will guide the business of CNA.
  • All Nurses in Connecticut should be minimally prepared with a baccalaureate degree in nursing.
