Board of Director's Message
“We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.”
During the course of the last 24 years I have been privileged with being involved with some of the best healthcare providers in the nation. I started in an emergency room with a strong involvement in ENA and transitioned into a career in transport with just as strong involvement in ASTNA. It never ceases to amaze me how diverse our knowledge base and backgrounds can be in the industry. We work together to continually improve the ability to safely transport critically ill patients of all ages and sizes. I would love to encourage everyone to join ASTNA in order to help us continue to grow our professional organization. We need the special talent, awesome knowledge base, and fresh perspective each transport member can bring to the table.
My name is Tina Johnson. I am currently serving as an ASTNA Board of Director Member at Large. I serve as a liaison to the TRACER and TPATC advisory committee as well as the Regional Director of TPATC on the East Coast. I am a flight nurse, a mom, a daughter, and a wife. I continue to learn something EVERYDAY from people around me – whether it is from the perspective of my children or a student in a TPATC class or a patient. My hope is to be able to give back a small portion of the grace I have witnessed over the years in my career to the people of this awesome organization called ASTNA!
