The Mission of ITNS
The International Transplant Nurses Society is committed to the promotion of excellence in clinical transplant nursing through the provision of educational and professional growth opportunities, interdisciplinary networking, collaborative activities, and nursing research.
The International Transplant Nurses was founded in 1992 as the first professional nursing organization to promote the education and clinical practice excellence of nurses caring for solid organ transplant patients. Today, ITNS is a leading transplant organization with more than 1,900 active members representing 32 countries around the world.
A vital component of countless nursing careers, ITNS provides a forum for learning about the most current advances in transplantation and transplant patient care. Over the years ITNS has provided skilled transplant nurses the opportunity to share and learn with national and international peers and to receive recognition for their knowledge, leadership, and scholarly pursuits.
