amongst others.

Objectives are:
  • Standardized healthcare training programs.
  • Provide basic healthcare materials and equipment for the institution’s need.  
  • Provide educational opportunities and information dissemination to our members.
  • Seek the welfare of our members.
  • Coordinate with other organizations and institutions to provide services to our members  and TNIMA

The association sprouted from the ideas of nearly every members living in the United States of America as a platform to reach one
another and reflect the glory of our beloved institution. The primary focus is to unify us everywhere in the spirit of reaching back to our
alma mater. Our membership now spans from the USA to Canada, Chad, Germany, Great Britain, Liberia, Norway and Sweden.

In August 2004, a group of TNIMA graduates; former students and staff spoke with each other about forming a body that will bring all
TNIMA affiliates together. The idea had seeded in the minds of a lot of people for many years but due to circumstances, a unified
body could not be brought into being. Some graduates had even formed themselves into units but were mostly restricted to those they
had acquaintance with e.g., graduated from the same school; attended during the same time period; or resided close to each other.

Following a meeting of Mrs. Sarah Amara (former Director of the School of Physician Assistant and current member of the Board of
Directors of this Association) with Dorbor Kolubah Kabah, Rufus and Ruth Tartee and other graduates, Jallah Kennedy was approached
about forming a ‘TNIMA group’. Frank Martin, Tarlo Garmo, David Wilson, Moses Yoko, Mitchell Dorbor, Ellen James, Lewis Weiah,
Musu Amara Blama, Argbah Momolu, Garmai Korboi, Nathaniel Dawonde, Catherine Belleh and others were consulted. Several
suggestions were brought forward geared toward establishing a mean that would bring the idea into being. Telephone mini-
conferences were started via individual cells phones and long distance lines. Membership rose between August 2004 and October
2004 from about 15 persons to 75. Names of graduates, former students and staffs were shared and contacts made. We have tried to
reach everyone for whom contact information are available. So far, only two persons have declined to join the association. Nationwide
(USA) teleconferences began on October 10,2004 and followed mostly on the second Sunday of each month thereafter. By November
2004, membership had risen to around 150 including 6 persons from Canada, Sweden, Norway, UK and Germany. Some graduates
from Europe and Liberia, including Mr. John Dorbor (the current Registrar of TNIMA) served as participants during one or more of the
conference calls.  Current membership listing is over 330. Please review the
membership listing. There are many members for whom
contact information are not available. If you need information about any of the names or to give information about other graduates,
please contact us by clicking on the
CONTACT US page.

Considering the diversity of members and the need to include everyone, the group was named the TNIMA Association. This
incorporates all graduates, former students and staffs. Associate and honorary memberships were also created to include other health
workers as well as the spouses of members and those with vested interest in the Association and the healthcare educational system in
Liberia and beyond.

In order to create other means of mass communications, mass email listings were created which currently contains 144 persons. This
was followed by the purchasing of this website. The website has become a proliferate means of communication and interaction. Our
official email address is
info@tnimaa.org.  

The costs associated with the formation, organization and travel has been exclusively voluntary.

It is our hope that we will work together to organized this association in order to have an impact on activities at our alma mater,
TNIMA. We will also be able to have a unified voice when dealing with the institution for documentations PARTICULARLY
TRANSCRIPTS AND VERIFICATIONS for such procedures as NURSING STATE BOARD REGISTRATION, COLLEGE APPLICATIONS
and EXCHANGES amongst others.

Please make it your utmost effort to reach other members so that we can continue to have massive participations since crucial
decisions are being made.
