Call for Nominations

We are now inviting nominations for the Halton Chapter executive for the term of office, December 1, 2014–2016. A position on the Halton Chapter executive is a great way to become engaged with nursing colleagues in your area – nurses who welcome the collaborative and networking efforts of their local colleagues; nurses who also may feel ‘distant’ from their colleagues, or who feel disillusioned and need peer support.
