Due to the impact of the global pandemic caused by the coronavirus, the BNA executive board has made the decision to postpone all social activities during the month of May. We will continue to celebrate the profession of nursing throughout the month of May and the year 2020 as this is the Year of the Nurse and the Midwife. May 1st is the start of Nurses' Month. We may not have an opportunity to gather together this year, but we will continue to celebrate the profession of nursing using various media outlets.

"Nurses are the vital heart of every healthcare institution"
Philosophy: The BNA believes that all nurses should belong to their Professional Nursing Association, with the overall aim of maintaining and contributing to the improvement of health care services and the nursing profession. The Association will strive to actively liaise with other professional associations in matters pertaining to nurses and health care.
The Bermuda Nurses Association awards two students and one BNA Registered Nurse scholarships annually.
Our constitution sets out how the Bermuda Nurses Association will be governed.
