The mission of AHNA is to illuminate holism
in nursing practice, community, advocacy, research, and education. 

AHNA pledges to continue to support nurses during the COVID-19 pandemic by distributing a bi-weekly Tuesday, evidence-based newsletter containing updated guidance in: clinical research, global and USA status reports, pandemic epidemiology, shortages and solutions, and vulnerable populations. 


Our COVID-19 updates reflect AHNA's vision Every Nurse Is a Holistic Nurse.


This is exhibited as we incorporate the evidence-based research of multiple nursing specialties.

Dr. Lorna Breen was the head of the Emergency Department at New York-Presbyterian Allen Hospital in New York City. She dedicated her career to helping others and tirelessly treated patients with COVID-19 at the height of the outbreak, eventually contracting COVID-19 herself. Dr. Breen died by suicide after telling her family that she was reluctant to seek help or ask for assistance for overwhelming work-related stress because she feared that she would lose her medical license or be ostracized by her colleagues.

 "It is beyond time to speak up." 

National Academy of Medicine Perspectives commentary, Dr. Breen’s sister and brother-in-law reflect on the final weeks of their sister’s life and work and make an impassioned call to break the culture of silence that surrounds mental health support and assistance for clinicians. Stigma kills.
