Message from the President:

On behalf of SANN team, I would like to request all nurses to join the movement of SANN for greater networking, professional growth and community service. Let us join for a common cause and community services.
Plea for Help for Nepal Earthquake Victims
You might be already aware of the devastating earthquake that hit Nepal in the morning of April 25. Until now, thousands of people have been confirmed dead, and the casualty is expected to go up tremendously. Thousands of injured are in desperate need of medical attention. Countless have lost their homes and are literally on street in need of water, food, warm clothes, medicines, and medical attention. We may not share the victim’s anguish but we can help to alleviate it. 100% of the contributions will go towards helping victims.

SANN’s History: A nursing organization that can assemble all nurses from Nepal was a growing need in the Nepalese communities residing in the United States of America. The task in the beginning was very informal. Nurses around DC metro area started organizing baby showers of several nurses and have nurses’ informal gathering in community picnic. That shorts of activities motivated nurses to organize for common goals and specific objectives. Realizing such need and exchanging ideas among many motivated nurses from Nepal, we came to a final point of decision on July 2, 2011 meeting held in Washington DC metro area. Many friends from different states came to join the meeting honoring the public message about the nurses meeting and decided to form an organization of nurses with specific objectives set in the meeting. The DC meeting decided to honor all those attending nurses as the founding members of the organization.
We conducted the second general meeting in Dallas Texas on June 30, 2012. Many enthusiastic nurses from different parts of the country joined the meeting. It is understandable that majority of nurses were from Texas and many from outside made phone calls and showed their solidarity for a continual work of nursing organization. Texas meeting finalized the name of our organization as “Society of American Nepalese Nurses (SANN)” and passed its bylaws.
SANN, as an organization, can collectively promote our professional passions, ethics, values, manners and growth for a compassionate care of patients with their specific needs. As a responsible human being, nurses can make difference through SANN’s philanthropic activities especially in health and education.
