The Korean American Nurses Association of Southern California (KANASC) was founded by forty Korean immigrant nurses in 1969. At the time, many nurses came from Korea, but there was no organized way of networking and sharing information about being a nurse in the U.S. As a result, they founded KANASC to help and support each other, as well as other immigrant nurses.Since 1971, an RN review course was offered through KANASC. After completing this course, about 3,000 new immigrant nurses were able to successfully obtain an RN license and practice as professional nurses in the U.S. In addition, KANASC has provided annual scholarships to support nursing students; offered continuing education for nurses; coordinated health fairs and other resources for local communities; assisted in arrangement of heart surgeries for children with heart problems; and much more.
