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.
All, please know that all of our efforts to support the 2021 Advocacy in Action program have truly made a difference! The final tabulation of the different techniques used is in the works. Because of our healthcare backgrounds, we have been especially helpful to the States where our MUSNAVC members volunteered to join their State Advocacy in Action teams. So many thanks to you for your responses to the calls to action as we tackled three very important topics. So stay tuned for the results! Thank you all great MUSNAVC Advocates!!
WELCOME to those who are visiting our website for the first time. You’ll be able to learn about who we are, how we contribute to MOAA’s goals, learn from each other, and how we can keep up with what is happening among the different services that are all in the process of transformation of the military healthcare system. And of course, our advocacy efforts are both federally and state focused. And as we have 343 members in 50 states, DC, and PR, we are challenged by developing new friendships and supporting our local communities.
We’re always trying to develop outreach initiatives. So, for example, we’ve initiated OPEN FORUMS where we can focus on getting to know more about each other. This initiative also supports hearing from you about your ideas to keep improving out Chapter. Everyone’s input is important! And you’ll want to learn about how we have thrived in this virtual environment. Many Thanks to all who participated in our June Open Forum, and we look forward to having you join our next Open Forum in October.
As we now say with glee “We were virtual before virtual became cool”!
