Nursing Professional Organizations

The PNSO encourages UVA nurses to become involved in local and national professional organizations. UVA nurses value professional organization membership as a means of networking with peers, reinvigorating professional energy, promoting clinical and professional expertise, and addressing practice and political issues that affect nurses, nursing and health care.

See below for local chapters and opportunities, and a list of national professional organizations.

Local Chapters of Professional Organizations

The PNSO is extremely proud of the UVA nurses participating in these local and state professional organizations -- in many cases, UVA nurses hold elected leadership roles, and in some cases are responsible for founding local chapters of the national organization. Thank you for your commitment on behalf of the nursing profession!
