Watch "Why Unity?"

This year's Unity Conference for Nursing Excellence will be held at the Hilton Atlanta Downtown Hotel from October 31 to November 2, 2019.

The Unity Movement is a collaborative initiative launched by United Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (UAPRN) of Georgia and the Georgia Nurses Association (GNA) to support the achievement of nursing excellence through the synergy that naturally occurs when all nurses, regardless of discipline, come together.

Whether practicing as a professional nurse, an advanced practice registered nurse, or as a nurse executive, educator, or scholar, we are all engaged in work to advance the health of patients and populations. This is what the Unity Movement celebrates.
