Asian American/Pacific Islander Nurses Association

Asian American/Pacific Islander Nurses Association (AAPINA) was established in 1991. The mission of AAPINA has been carried by dedicated AAPI nurses since then. They have four goals. The first and most importantly they identify and support the health care needs of Asian Pacific Islanders (API) in the United States and globally. Second, they implement strategies to act on issues, registration and public policies affecting the health of APIs. Third, they collaborate with other interdisciplinary health and professional organizations. Forth, they identify and support professional and nursing concerns of API nurses in the United States and globally. Under this broad rubric, the organization, lead by the President, SeonAe Yeo, Ph.D., RNC, since 2001, has been evolved significantly. She and other Executive Board of Directors (Vice President, Jillian Inouye, Ph.D., APRN-BC, Secretary, Mayumi A. Willgerodt, Ph.D., MPH, RN, and Treasurer, Ching-eng H. Wang, Ph.D., CCRN, RN) have systematically invigorated this unique organization to the current scale. The association has steadily and actively remained as a conduit to provide current statistics and national information on the health status of APIs and to provide opportunities and information such as scholarships, grants and meetings for members via annual conferences, newsletters, and web site. The association now has become a home for many AAPIs including international Asian nurses and graduated-student nurses who reside all over the United States. Membership is open to anyone who supports the objectives of the AAPINA.
