The Nursing Organizations Alliance (NOA)

NOA exists to connect elected and staff leaders of professional nursing organizations to inspire, collaborate, and provide a forum for information exchange and the sharing of resources and best practices.

NOA is the premier collaborative community convening leaders of professional nursing organizations to address common interests and achieve shared goals.

The Nursing Organizations Alliance (NOA) was formed when two long-standing coalitions of nursing organizations united to create an enduring collaborative that would promote a strong voice and cohesive action to address issues of concern to the community of nursing. The historic vote to create NOA occurred on November 17, 2001, at a special meeting of the National Federation for Specialty Nursing Organizations (NFSNO) and the Nursing Organizations Liaison Forum (NOLF) member organizations in Salt Lake City, UT.

Membership in NOA is open to any nursing organization whose focus is to address current and emerging nursing and health care issues. Structural nursing components of a multi-disciplinary organization are also welcome to join.
