    We, the Philippine Nurses Association of Virginia (PNAVA) believe that patients have the right to expect quality health care. As health care providers, we accept responsibility to provide such care by actively seeking opportunities for continued professional growth through education, research, and advance clinical practice.

    We believe that a Filipino-American nurse has unique cultural needs that must be met to ensure professional success in a diversified society while preserving cultural identity. We believe that as a member of the community and the nursing profession, we have the responsibility to be involved in activities that promote health and wellness through community education. We believe that as health care practitioners it is our duty to respond to legislative and public policies that have impact on the health care agenda.
