The Nursing Network on Violence Against Women International (NNVAWI) was formed to encourage the development of nursing practice to address the health and social effects of violence in women's lives. NNVAWI was founded in November of 1985 during the first National Nursing Conference on Violence Against Women held at the University of Massachusetts/ Amherst. When international members joined the network, the name was changed to reflect this broader membership (NNVAWI).

Our Mandate

The abuse and exploitation of women is a social problem of epidemic proportions which adversely affects the health and quality of life of millions of women each year. The Network's ethic fosters the ideal of nursing practice designed to provide assistance and support to women in the process of achieving their own personal empowerment. The ultimate goal of NNVAWI is to provide a nursing presence in the struggle to end violence in women's lives.

Priority Goals

  Provide leadership and outreach to nurses and others in the sharing of knowledge and ideas and in generating support for nurses in their work on violence against women.
  Create supportive strategies to mitigate the effects of violence, abuse, and exploitation of women in our society.
  Sponsor international nursing conferences to link researchers, educators, providers and advocates who work in the area of violence against women.
  Network at other major conferences attended by nurses, especially those that focus on women's health and issues of violence.
