To advance excellence in nursing care for the prevention and treatment of addictions for diverse populations across all practice settings through advocacy, collaboration, education, research and policy development.
Our strength comes from our members, including clinicians, educators, managers, and researchers who practice in a wide variety of settings, including treatment centers, hospitals, schools, private practices, primary care, and other community agencies. We firmly believe that all nurses, regardless of their specialty or practice setting, can play a role in the promotion of healthy lifestyles and the early identification of people at greater risk for developing problems associated with the abuse of addictive substances.
MA IntNSA is the Massachusetts chapter of the International Nurses Society on Addictions (inc), an organization that was founded by and for nurses committed to the prevention, treatment and management of addictive disorders.
MA IntNSA is a group that is open to all Massachusetts nurses who appreciate the great importance of treating addiction and desire the opportunity to work with other nurses to educate, advocate and lead the cause.
We meet from 5-7pm on the second Tuesday of every month at 801 Mass Ave in Boston.
Nurses interested in joining should feel free to stop by one of our monthly meetings
