Celebrate the Year of the Nurse 2020




What is the Purpose of the Northeast Ohio Clinical Nurse Specialist Affiliate?

The purpose of this affiliate is to foster networking, broaden knowledge and showcase the work of CNSs working in Northeast Ohio. The affiliate is comprised of national leaders in nursing whose presentations, publications and masterful mentoring have contributed significantly to the advancement of nursing.
