Welcome to MODNA

The Mid-Ohio District Nurses Association was founded in 1925 as the “Ohio State Association of Graduate Nurses” and represented alumni of nine area schools of nursing. The association had office space at the Great Southern Hotel in downtown Columbus. At that time, the Association focused on the collective concerns of all nurses and served as a registry for the purpose of providing Private Duty Nursing to area clients.

Throughout the decades, the Association has evolved with the nursing profession.  With a history rich in service, camaraderie, activism and its commitment to nursing as a profession MODNA continues to be a vibrant and active association for central Ohio Nurses.
