Abstract: The Greater Cleveland Nurses Association (f. 1900), one of 27 districts of the Ohio Nurses Association encompassing Cuyahoga and Geauga Counties, is an organization for nurses offering informational, educational, involvement and leadership development opportunities. The mission of the organization is to be a "dynamic organization whose mission is to work for the improvement of health care for all people in significant and visible ways, to foster high professional standards and to promote the professional development of nurses." The organization provides educational opportunities at quarterly district meetings and other events and is an active participant in legislative hearings about health care issues as well as providing other avenues for political action regarding nursing and health care. They have worked with other agencies such as the Nursing Roundtable, Health Systems Agency, and WomenSpace on various initiatives. The organizational structure of the Greater Cleveland Nurses Association has evolved over the years and such a change that occurred in 1993 is documented in this collection. The collection consists of advertisements, agendas, annual reports, brochures, budgets, bylaws, charts, correspondence, financial information, forms, journal articles, lists, magazine articles, manuals, membership applications, memoranda, minutes, newsletters, newspaper clippings, notes, photographs, reports, scrapbooks, and surveys.
