Regional Groups

One of the most common questions received at ACNA is, "Does my area have a chapter?"  or "How can I start a chapter?"  In response the ACNA has formally launched its Regional Meet-up Initiative.  

ACNA Conducting a Meetup

ACNA's long-term goal is to be recognized by the American Nurses Association as a specialty nursing organization and, accordingly, we have established the organization as a professional association. 

ACNA has revised our Meet-up Initiative.  These semi- formal groups give ACNA members a chance to meet and discuss issues of common concern. The initiative is having success! Please join our ACNA FB page and participate in your regional group: Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Southeast, Southwest and Central/Midwest

If you are interested in leading a local meet-up or are interested in joining a meet-up contact us [email protected]  Meet ups will provide the much needed support that our members have been clamoring for.  You don't need to feel alone.  

If you would like to learn more about the initiative and/or wish to start a Meet-up in your region please contact  [email protected]
