Prior to the existence of HNA, there was no other organization or association of its kind that represented the Hmong nursing profession. In an effort to bridge this gap, the Hmong Nurses Association (HNA) was formed. HNA provides a unique opportunity for Hmong nurses as well as the communities they serve because of its mission and purpose. HNA is a nonprofit public benefit corporation.

Be a professional organization that unites and empowers Hmong nurses to strengthen nursing knowledge and clinical practice towards the highest standards, to passionately sustain the collegial interactions and quality of life amongst Hmong nurses through networking and mentorship, and to educate the Hmong community about wellness management
