The Indiana State Nurses Association is the professional organization for Indiana’s registered nurses. The Association was organized in 1903 to secure nurse licensure to protect the citizens of Indiana. For over 100 years we have been promoting and protecting nurses, the nursing profession, and those who receive nursing care.

ISNA is headquartered in Indianapolis and is part of the American Nurses Association, headquartered in Washington, D.C. and the International Council of Nurses, based in Geneva, Switzerland.

The official publications of the organization are the Indiana Nurses Foundation Bulletin which is published quarterly and distributed to every RN in Indiana, and the ISNAbler, our weekly e-newsletter sent to all ISNA members.


ISNA works through its members to promote and influence quality nursing and health care.


ISNA is the recognized leader for nurses and professional nursing practice in Indiana.


Unity, Advocacy, Professionalism and Leadership.
