What We Do

Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) provides expert and compassionate care to all who need it – regardless of their age, station in life or available resources. VNA’s mission is delivering community-based care that provides peace of mind, quality of life and independence.

For more than 120 years, we have helped build a stronger, healthier community through innovative in-home and community care programs delivered across the lifespan. Each year, VNA helps nearly 50,000 people live higher quality and more independent lives by providing innovative services that meet the unique public health, family support, home health and hospice needs of vulnerable families throughout Nebraska and western Iowa. VNA uses evidence or research–based programs and a client-centered educational and supportive approach that helps families and individuals meet their needs and maintain stability on their own or with other support.

VNA service areas include:

Breast Cancer Support assists individuals facing financial hardships as a result of a breast cancer diagnosis.
Community Health Care to enhance health and quality of life for all.
Hospice & Palliative Care focuses on pain and symptom management to provide individuals with the highest quality of life.
