Our Mission in Action

Growing. Engaging. Governing.


The National Association of Catholic Nurses, U.S.A. has a history spanning over one-hundred years from the seeds of its beginnings at the 1909 establishment of the “Guild of St. Radegonde for Nurses” in Boston, Massachusetts.  

NACN-USA is a volunteer association.  All that we do is initiated and carried out by our members, who volunteer time, talent, and energy to carry out our Mission.  

That Mission is becoming ever more important, as we consistently fight to place nursing within the Catholic moral framework.  As President, I am encouraging all you members to vote to fill the positions for new officers and regional directors that make up our governing Board of Directors.

Take a few minutes to look at the brief biographies and place your votes.  Your action in voting is an encouragement toward the Board of Directors.  Thank you. 

In Jesus' Name, Your President,  Ellen Gianoli, RN
