A warm welcome to the International Association of Sickle Cell Nurses and Professional Associates website. IASCNAPA is a nonprofit professional organization consisting of nurses and other healthcare professionals. We are health experts interfacing between the health care and academic systems and the sickle cell community. Our association’s mission is to “provide a platform for nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, social workers, sickle cell advocates, and other healthcare professionals caring for individuals with sickle cell disease to improve the care of people with sickle cell disease through advocacy, standardized practice, and education." IASCNAPA is here to grow and strengthen our members and to meet their professional needs. We continue to respond to the challenges experienced by those living with sickle cell disease.
IASCNAPA needs ALL professionals caring for individuals with sickle cell disease. We sincerely appreciate each of your professional experiences, talents, wisdom, and gifts. If we are collaborative in our efforts, we can make a greater impact to address the needs of the sickle cell community and support nurses and health professionals working throughout our nation and world. A quote by Marian Wright Edelman, “Education is for improving the lives of others and for leaving your community and world better than you found it.” Join us on our journey as we advocate for those living with sickle cell disease and move IASCNAPA forward. Welcome!
