About VNAA


The Visiting Nurse Associations of America (VNAA) is the official national association for not-for-profit, community based home health organizations known as Visiting Nurse Associations (VNAs).

Visiting Nurse Associations (VNAs) created the profession of home health care more than 100 years ago. They have a united mission to bring compassionate, high-quality and cost-effective home care to individuals in their respective communities.

In this new century, not-for-profit VNAs continue their unparalleled selfless tradition by offering quality of life and independence to all Americans through comprehensive home health care. Today, guided by their charitable missions, VNAs care for nearly 4 million people annually.

Our Mission

VNAA was created for and by Visiting Nurse Associations (VNAs) in 1983 to support and differentiate the VNAs from other home health companies.

Our mission is to “support, promote and advance VNAs in their mission to serve their communities”.

Toward this end, we serve our members through work in promoting community based home health care through business development, national public imaging, member services and government advocacy.

Plan of Action

The Visiting Nurse Associations of America (VNAA) fulfills its mission to further VNAs in their community work by focusing on four key areas.

  • National Imaging is a critical part of our agenda. It is our strategy to educate consumers, health practitioners, policymakers, and corporate America to the vital work that VNAs are doing everyday in homes all over the United States.
  • Business Development achieved through partnerships with health care plans and corporate America gives our members the ability to provide a wide range of quality health care services to individuals in their communities.
  • Member Services is our opportunity to provide members with up to the minute “best” home care practices. Our work allows members to learn from and share the work they have accomplished, not only internally but with their patients and families. Through member services we are able to offer members the products, support and resources they need to accomplish their goals.
  • Government Advocacy plays an essential role at VNAA. As the “one voice” for VNAs, VNAA advocates for fair and equitable home health care legislation and regulations by educating and working closely with policymakers. The home health care role is more important than ever and must be protected to ensure healthy communities.
