President’s Welcome

Welcome to the Tampa Chapter of Haitian American Nurses Association (HANA of Tampa)! I am pleased to be the 2018-2020 Chapter President and look forward to continuing to Serve, Promote, and Educate by way of HANA! I am explicitly excited to work with our current and future members towards growing our chapter and organization into a professional hub for like-minded individuals in the Tampa Bay area. If you are seeking an organization that will allow you to grow personally and professionally, look no further. HANA of Tampa meets every 3rd Saturday of the month and has numerous opportunities to not only interact but give back to our communities both here and abroad. Additionally, our yearly galas and leadership convention allow us the opportunity to not only recognize our members and colleagues, but also pave the way for our younger generation of nurses by providing them scholarships. I look forward to a successful and fruitful term with you!!

Sincerest Regards,

Edline Pierre, MSN, ARNP-C, FNP-BC
