OUR MISSION   The Orthodox Jewish Nurses Association seeks to provide a forum to discuss professional issues related to Orthodox Jewish nurses, arrange social and educational events, and to serve the special needs of its members.

OUR HISTORY   The concept of an Orthodox Jewish nursing network began in 2008 when Rivka Pomerantz BSN, RN, IBCLC graduated from nursing school. Rivka felt the need for a forum to discuss issues specific to Orthodox Jewish nurses and began an online support group. With time and momentum building, the idea of annual nursing conferences took shape and was sponsored by various professional organizations. Over the years, networking events have taken place in New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Florida. In 2016, with the support of previous board members L’via Weisinger, Goldie Burstein, and Linda Segel, OJNA became incorporated as a non-profit organization.

OUR MEMBERS   Our highly active Facebook group currently has over 1,900 members. Representation on this forum spans the United States, Israel, and Canada.

OUR FUTURE   We strive to meet the needs of our members, promote professionalism and career advancement, and be a voice for Orthodox Jewish nurses across the world.
