Our History - Greater East Texas Black Nurses Association, INC.

The Greater East Texas Black Nurse Association [GETBNA] was incorporated in 1991 by 12 Registered Nurses who set out to establish a local minority nurse chapter to support the international initiatives of minority disparity in healthcare. The National Black Nurse Association [NBNA] was organized in 1971 with a current membership of over 150,000 nurses.

The overall mission is to “provide a forum for collective action by nurses to investigate, define and advocate for the health care needs of African Americans and other ethnic groups to implement strategies that ensure access to health care equal to, or above health care standards of the larger society”.
