Mattie Burton, President
Susan Jones, Past-President
During her tenure as KNA President, Susan Jones led the KNA through many positive changes as she and the Board of Directors worked to create a new and contemporary direction for the KNA and the nurses of Kentucky. Susan's term will end this coming October at the KNA Convention and she will hand the reigns over to Mattie Burton. Mattie has been serving on the Board of Directors for several years and she has been working with Susan to create a smooth transition and build an even bigger vision for the future of KNA.
The KNA staff works in Louisville at the KNA Headquarters and KNA Elected Leadership comes from across the state. We are all happy to serve and represent KNA members and registered nursing in Kentucky.
