Preserving Our Past, Capitalizing on the Present, Embracing the Future

About Us

The Army Nurse Corps Association (ANCA) is an organization dedicated to the Army Nurse Corps and its officers. We are a voluntary membership organization consisting of Army nurses who are Active Duty, Reserve, or National Guard, whether currently serving, previously served, or retired.

All members have voting rights and any member may hold elective office in accordance with established criteria. All members are welcome to serve in other volunteer capacities and on the various committees of the organization. All are encouraged to support fellow officers.

RANCA LogoIn 1976, a group of retired Army Nurse Corps officers met in San Antonio and expressed a desire to continue the cama­raderie and close ties of Army nurses and establish a means of communication by, for, and about Army nurses. The Retired Army Nurse Corps Association (RANCA) was officially formed in 1977. In 2000, the organization's bylaws were amended to incorporate all active ANC components in addition to retired as eligible for membership, and the name was changed to the Army Nurse Corps Association to reflect that change in composition. ANCA is a 501(c)19 nonprofit organization incorpor­ated in the State of Texas.
