OUR MISSION STATEMENT: NAANA strives to uphold and cultivate the Anthroposophic nursing and medical practices indicated by Rudolf Steiner and Ita Wegman. It will work to further enhance the quality of care giving and to develop and support the community of Anthroposophic nurses through peer support, education, research, and collective collaboration.

NAANA is working with the reality that we live in a time where there is no time! We are searching for the tools that will allow us to generate the space and the light for the pressing issues of continued growth and development. We want to be active in building up and working in alliances and we recognize that work done in relationship with others is the way of the future.

Toward this goal, we are fortunate to have not only AAMTA to partner with, but also the wellsprings of connections within the international Anthroposophic medical community through the Medical Section and the International Forum for Anthroposophic Nursing (IFAN). It was out of these alliances that NAANA developed and is able to continue to offer certified continuing education in Rhythmical Einreibung, Oil Dispersion Bath Therapy, and the Foundation Course in Anthroposophic Nursing. Through the collaboration with the Physicians' Association for Anthroposophic Medicine (PAAM) at the International Postgraduate Medical Training (IPMT), starting in 2009, the development of the Foundation Course in Anthroposophic Nursing was made possible. In 2015 at the IPMT, NAANA took another step toward the future development of Anthroposophic Nursing in inaugurating the certified course work for the Anthroposophic Nurse Specialist.

NAANA is committed to creating broader alliances. As our heart strength in number grows, more will become possible, and the way forward to building alliances with the greater therapeutic community will develop.

-Elizabeth Sustick, Vice President of NAANA

“For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side effect of one’s personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself…Happiness must happen, and the same holds true for success: you must let it happen by not caring about it. I want you to listen to what your conscience commands you to do and go on to carry it out to the best of your knowledge. Then you will live to see that in the long run- in the long run, I say! - success will follow you precisely because you had forgotten to think about it.”
