National Association of Catholic Nurses, USA is the national professional organization for Catholic nurses in the United States. A nonprofit group of hundreds of nurses of different backgrounds, the NACN-USA focuses on promoting moral principles of patient advocacy, human dignity, and professional and spiritual development in the integration of faith and health within the Catholic context in nursing. Its members are critically concerned for the wellbeing of women and their unborn children threatened by the FDA-approved protocol for prescribing and dispensing mifepristone, described herein.
