We Want to Hear From You

Posted by CNF President on May 26, 2014  |   No Comments »

Where do you see the future of nursing?

What direction do you want to the profession to go?

Where do you think we need the most improvement as a whole?

Nursing is both an art and a science, and one that is continually evolving to meet the needs of those practicing and those being served.

CNF is proud to work on initiatives throughout the year to improve the present and anticipate the future of nursing, but we need your help. All our initiatives are aimed at meeting the needs of the nurses serving in our communities, the professionals working in our hospitals and our neighborhoods. We want to hear from you.

Join the conversation today and tell us what you think.
