   The Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) is the nation’s largest and most influential association of military officers.  It is an independent, nonprofit, politically nonpartisan organization.


WELCOME to the website of the MOAA Uniformed Services Nurse Advocates  Virtual Chapter.  If you are concerned about Military Healthcare issues which affect Uniformed Service Members (currently serving and Reserve/Guard components, Retirees, Veterans and their families), you’ve landed at the right site. If you’re a current or past member of a Uniformed Services Nurse Corps, you’re on a great path.  We also require membership in the Military Officers Association of America, but that can be done as part of the application process at no cost.  We also charge no dues!  Our members have had interesting and diverse careers, with extraordinary expertise in many areas of nursing.  Nurses have always been patient advocates, caring for them continues through advocacy for healthcare-related legislation and other important MOAA goals.  

Purpose of MUSNAVC

To promote and support the Military Officers Association of America;


To foster fraternal relations and camaraderie among Military Nurses;


To advocate for Healthcare related services and programs for all Military service members, former and present.

Chapter Update

Advocacy in Action 2024 saw over a hundred MOAA leaders, staff, and Chapter leaders, from across the Country, descend on Washington, DC to visit all 535 congressional representatives.  The event was a huge success with each House and Senate representative being engaged.  I was fortunate to be among those attending and was amazed at the enthusiasm, vigor, excitement, and camaraderie.   Many thanks to all our members who participated by sending emails, calling, and visiting your local offices.

During the gathering MOAA announced the winners of the Levels of Excellence and the COL Marvin Harris Communication awards for 2023.  MUSNAVC was awarded:

5-Star Level of Excellence Award: LOE awards are MOAA's most prestigious affiliate awards, honoring councils and chapters for their efforts across the full scope of our association's mission. 


5-Star Marvin Harris Communications Award: MOAA's annual program identifying councils and chapters that do an outstanding job communicating with their members.  Awards were given for both our e-Newsletter and our website.


Without all our wonderful volunteer Board of Directors, there would not be a MUSNAVC!  National MOAA has recognized the significant role and contributions our Chapter members bring to the National Advocacy efforts of MOAA.  Your membership, support, and commitment to “Never Stop Serving” is invaluable and much appreciated.


Finally, stay informed and get involved.  Never Stop Serving.
