THE TRAINED NURSES ASSOCIATION OF INDIA Established 1908. 107 Glorious Years of Association Moving ahead with commitment and dedication…
The Trained Nurses’ Association of India (TNAI) is a national organization of nurse professionals at different levels. It was established in 1908 and was initially known as Association of Nursing Superintendents. The Government of India has recognized TNAI as a service organization in 1950. A similar recognition by all the State Governments has been an asset to the promotion of its objectives.
Upholding every way:
A life member is a person who is a registered Nurse and Midwife (equivalent of midwifery training in case of male nurse), trained from an institution recognised by the Indian Nursing Council/State Nursing Council and holds a certificate of training issued by a Nursing Registration Council or Board of Examinations recognised by the Indian Nursing Council.
Chhattisgarh TNAI is a inexorable part of TNAI. This Associations in nursing is critical for generating the energy, flow of ideas, and proactive work needed to maintain a healthy profession that advocates for the needs of its clients and nurses, and the trust of society. We are committed to encourage all nurses to engage in their professional organizations and associations, noting how these organizations contribute to the accountability and voice of the profession to society.
The Association had its beginning with a handful of zealous nurses with a commitment to work for the nurses of Chhattisgarh.The organisation is composed of Nurses holding different posts in hospitals and colleges.Like their counterparts in countries, this small band of women was imbued with vision and a pioneering spirit. They saw the need to develop Nursing as a profession and also to provide a forum where professional Nurses could meet and plan to achieve these ends.
The TNAI brings out a quarterly newsletter, The TNAICG Bulletin which was founded in 2015 as its official organ. This is the main link between the members of the Association and State Branches on all important matters.
TNAI is being committed to provide welfare to nurses in the Chhattisgarh. We are intented to encourage all nurses to engage in their professional organizations and associations, noting how these organizations contribute to the accountability and voice of the profession to society.
POLICY STATEMENT -STRIKES
Following is the text of the statement of ‘TNAI Policy with Regard to Strikes by Nurses’ discussed at the TNAI Council Meeting in 1973 (and earlier) and approved by the Executive at the meetings at New Delhi in July 1976:
The Trained Nurses’ Association of India has for many years been greatly concerned about the economic welfare of Nurses and action which may be taken to negotiate for better benefits and working conditions for the profession. The following facts have emerged during this time:
Conditions under which a strike by Nurses may be approved or even carried out by TNAI Branches or local groups:
Nursing has its own identity as a health profession, hence, due recognition needs to be given to the role and contribution of Nursing personnel to health care services in the hospital and the community.
Nursing identity should be reflected in all planning papers, documents, and policy statements of government and non-government organizations with a view to strengthening development of Nursing, otherwise, this sector of the health system gets neglected and status of the Nursing service gets further diminished.
Nursing should not be designated as "paramedical", nor should its identity be lost under the term "health workers".
Nursing is supported by auxiliaries. The term "Nursing personnel" can be used to collectively designate a wide variety of workers of the Nursing team, both professionals and Nursing auxiliaries.
