Hello all UAPRN members,

This is a final call for candidates to run for the state UAPRN election!!! We have a nominee for Vice President. However, we still need a treasurer and Director-at- Large.

Please consider running for office, as we cannot have an effective UAPRN without our leadership team. The UAPRN is a vital force in the state of Georgia for serving the healthcare needs of the citizens of Georgia, protecting your professional rights, and continuing to advance your nursing practice. We have a seasoned UAPRN leadership team who are willing to mentor new officers, and everyone knows being an officer of a state nursing group would look wonderful on your resume!
