Fresno Chapter

Hmong Nurses Association-Fresno Chapter (HNA-Fresno) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving the Central Valley since 2018.

HNA-Fresno continues to make a difference in our community through Scholarship, Mentorship, Health Education, and Community Service.



Increasing the number of Hmong nurses in the Central Valley one nurse at a time.  HNA-Fresno has continued to provide nursing scholarships to socially disadvantaged and first-generation students in the Central Valley.  HNA-Fresno strives to bring diversity to health care.  HNA-Fresno believes that diversifying the nursing workforce will allow for more culturally competent care.


HNA-Fresno members participate in health educational workshops to help address health disparities in our community.  We also continue to mentor nursing students and new graduate nurses as they prepare for licensing and job placement.  HNA-Fresno consists of nurses and nurse practitioners from all departments that are full of knowledge to share.


When there is a need in the community, HNA-Fresno responds by giving back.  Whether it be working for the Southeast Asian COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic or providing meals to nurses on Nurses Appreciation Day, HNA-Fresno continues to be present for their community and colleagues.
