The original ITNS logo was designed in 1992 and was a tree with each of the nine leaves representing a solid organ that could be transplanted at the time. The spaces on the tree represented transplants to come. ITNS wanted to incorporate the history of the tree into the new logo. In 2013, ITNS unveiled a new logo that carried over the leaf symbolism from the original logo. The new ITNS logo includes a leaf to represent an organ being donated and transplanted. The hands around the leaf represent our members and are sheltering the organ. The color palette specifically includes earth tones to reflect the diversity of membership in the organization across race, gender, nations, and continents. The leaf appears in the green color that represents transplant awareness. The new ITNS logo represents a personal touch in the transplant nurse's mission as the leaf is placed between two hands as if an organ is being shepherded with the utmost care in the transplant process.
ITNS is committed to the promotion of excellence in transplant clinical nursing by providing educational and professional growth opportunities, interdisciplinary networking and collaborative activities and transplant nursing research.
