President's Welcome

Hello, and 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!  I invite you to join in this exciting, pioneering initiative. Our members have had interesting and diverse careers, with extraordinary expertise in many areas of nursing.  While I no longer put my hands on patients, I feel that my caring for them continues through my advocacy for healthcare-related legislation, and other important MOAA goals.

President's Update

                                                                                                 President’s Message for 2020

As we all prepare for the New Year, it’s customary to reflect on the past year and to look to the opportunities for 2020.  While there is much to lament about locally, nationally and internationally, I have found that I have to balance that with considering  the good news stories and what I believe I/we need to work on in 2020.


 I’m a believer in looking at the phases of Team Development.  So initially Teams FORM, then they usually STORM, and with time, they NORM and by golly…then they PERFORM!! 


2019 has been a HIGH PERFORMING year for MUSNAVC.  We’ve continued to grow in terms of membership numbers, advocacy participation, tackling the tough “stuff”, learning about and appreciating each other, and continuing to try new approaches to this Virtual Chapter world.  I ask that you consider making the following New Year Resolutions:

1) I will provide timely, straightforward feedback to MUSNAVC leadership. If you feel that we’re not meeting your needs, what are those important needs and what should we do to improve your membership experience?


 2) If I have not signed up for the  the MOAA Newsletter, I’ll do that soonest  and respond to those Calls to Action


3)  I will pay special attention to the January 2020 Military Officer magazine!   


We so value your input.  Please send your comments to  Here’s to a Healthy, Joyous, Safe and Successful 2020!
