Welcome to the official website for Texas Nurses Association, District 9 (TNA D9)! This site will provide you information about District 9 and the Texas Nurses Association (TNA) activities. Being consistent with the mission of TNA to Empower Nurses to Advance the Profession, the goal of the TNA D9 Board of Directors is to support the work nurses do every day, to improve the health and well-being of patients and contribute to the development of colleagues and students in the Houston / Galveston area.

TNA is the voice of nursing for all nurses in Texas. Your membership in TNA and TNA D9 contributes to the funding needed to advocate for nurses and nursing practice during the legislative session. If you are not yet a member, please consider joining us at the local, state, and/or national level.

In July 2016, TNA D9 merged with District 6 making District 9 the largest district in the TNA with over 2500 members. This occurred after favorable votes by members in each district and revision of the district’s bylaws.

TNA D9 moved to a new office on the Southwest freeway leaving the office occupied for 46 years in August 2016. Archives from the district have been gifted to the John P. McGovern Historical Collections and Research Center, Houston Academy of Medicine Texas Medical Center Library. A reception is being planned for Oct 24 to recognize this donation.

TNA D9 hosted a jubilee to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the district in September 2016. The theme of the jubilee was Honoring Our Past, Engaging Our Present, Embracing Our Future. A CE offering was provided describing the lessons learned from the past work of TNA D9 and the implications for today’s nursing practice.

Our membership meetings have been restructured to be relevant to nursing practice and provide contact hours. The meetings are open to everyone. Sub district meetings are currently held in The Woodlands/Spring area. Meeting times and days vary, so check our website for what is coming! Other sub districts are being formed. A conference is currently being planned for Spring 2017. More information will follow.

Annually, TNA D9 recognizes the contributions nurses have made to our profession through continued delivery of quality care, support of their colleagues, and development of students at Nursing Celebration. On November 10th, TNA D9 will host the 26th Nursing Celebration at The Westin Galleria. At Nursing Celebration, plan to meet the executive director and the elected leadership of the Texas Nurses Association, participate in a Silent Auction with great offerings, and join the celebration and recognition of 20 outstanding nurses from the Houston / Galveston area.

Mark your calendar now to attend Nurses Day at the Capital on Feb 27 and 28, 2017 in Austin. This provides nurses an opportunity to meet with TNA leaders to discuss the nursing legislative agenda. Attendees are encouraged to meet with their legislators to discuss the agenda.
