   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

We are already approaching a critical deadline for the FY 2025 Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) … and early action will set MOAA up for success with some of our key legislative priorities.  This important early deadline is often the only chance for lawmakers who are not on the Armed Services committees to officially request NDAA provisions that support their constituents.  The more these lawmakers hear from their constituents, in addition to MOAA’s advocacy team, the greater the chance they will push for inclusion of our key priorities in their official NDAA request.


National MOAA members, from across the country, will be on Capital Hill meeting with representatives the third week of April as part of the Advocacy in Action-2024 campaign.  Your support and participation is imperative for success by contacting your representatives via the Legislative Action Center.  You do not have to be a MOAA member to use this site, anyone may participate.


MUSNAVC has initiated a new program to advocate for healthcare legislation, which could use a little Early Push.  We are focused on current healthcare legislation that could have an impact on all beneficiaries.  The program is an adjunct to the Legislative Action Center.  Visit and support the initiative HERE.


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