The Voice of Nurses

We are the only nursing organization that provides full-time lobbying activities on behalf of the nursing profession. In addition to the Ohio Statehouse, we also advocate for nurses directly at the workplace through our collective bargaining efforts.


ONAConnect is a online community and social networking site exclusively for ONA members.  Members can easily network with fellow nurses across the state, find others who share similar interests and use discussion boards to pose questions related to their practice.  Members can log on here.
