Our Vision:

"Improving Health Care from within: Nurses empowering Nurses"

The Trinidad and Tobago Registered Nurses Association (TTRNA), founded in 1930, is an independent, non-political, non-governmental and national association of Registered Nurses, Licensed Midwives, Advanced Practice Nurses, Registered Mental Nurse, Enrolled Nursing Assistants, Associate and Affiliate (PCA’s) members. Its primary goal is to represent its members and be the voice of the profession nationally, regionally and internationally through personal and professional development, education, representation and bargaining. It functions unrestricted by consideration of gender, social status, ethnicity, creed, colour or sexual orientation. TTRNA confines its interests and concerns primarily to matters related to health, nursing, Midwifery and Trade Union matters. It is not in itself a political body.

The decision to revise the July 2, 1977 Constitution (which was accepted on 25th April, 1979) was taken at the Adjourned Biennial Conference of February 23, 1991, authorizing the Central Executive to select the Chairperson. (Minutes of the Central Executive meeting – March 9,1991).

Revision of the constitution was completed in 1999 and was accepted at the Biennial Conference of 2000. Implementation of the Revised Constitution proved difficult during the 2000 to 2002 biennium because of expansions in the Association’s operations, necessitating its reorganization. Further indicating a need for amendment was an increased awareness of the requirements of the TTRNA’s Act of Incorporation – Act No.30 of 1980. With regard to the foregoing and based on financial and legal advice, the decision was taken at the October 2002 Biennial Conference to amend the revised constitution.

In its quest to fulfil its mandate to be the bargaining body for the professional amidst the changing environment of trade union representation, the TTRNA initiated and obtained a Certificate of Recognition as a Trade Union: Registration No. 524 on 23rd July,2014. It thus became necessary to amend the Act No.30 of 1980 in keeping with the requirements of Trade Union Status in Trinidad and Tobago. Through this 2016 Constitution, the Trinidad and Tobago Registered Nurses Association states its purpose, objectives, structure and functions, and describes the relationship with its members.
