In 1932, the GSNA began work for an appropriation for a school of nursing in the University system.
GSNA answered the call to action and inventoried nurses in Georgia for possible military service.
In 1951, GSNA endorsed health insurance and pension benefits for nurses.
The board of examiners reported that 11, 900 graduate nurses were registered in Georgia and the membership of the GSNA was over 2500 strong.
The next milestone came in 1962 when GSNA admitted its first African- American nurses to state membership.
