October 2018

Greetings to my peers, it has been two months since I have assumed this role and I've seen progress for our organization.  Progress occurs because of the efforts of many members and the more involvement we have the stronger our organization becomes. 

Our Google forum continues to serve us as an excellent educational tool for sharing and gaining information.  Both the Membership and Communications Committees are actively engaging members.  I am happy to announce we have completed our Needs Assessment to focus our 2019 Regional Education Programs and look at other future educational opportunities.  Our 2018 Regional Programs are going very well and attendance has been very good.   Marie Moore is leading out and partnering with the NMSS to facilitate a Comprehensive MS Nursing Update to help nurses achieve confidence to sit for the MSCN certification examination.

Our Board Meeting and Executive Board Meeting Minutes are being posted on our Website, which continues to serve as an excellent platform for Our Organizations information, including all  Our Committees and Committee Chairpersons.  

I welcome all members comments and encourage you to be an active member. Thank you for allowing me to serve you!

Patricia Pagnotta,  ARNP-C, MSN, CNRN, MSCN
