Greetings!   

 

The fall brings lots of terrific conferences to New England. I know you can get your contact hours on line but what you can't get is the networking and opportunity to learn from your fellow occ health nurses unless you attend a meeting. Everyone is tired but sometimes the thing you need is a fun night out. Please consider going to one of these meetings it just might rejuvenate you.

 

I invite you to step out of your comfort zone and register right now for a meeting. Your presence adds to the meeting and you might just have something to contribute. We all learn from each other. These are a great chance to be with incredibly smart men and women.

 

You do not have to be a AAOHN or HEHNA member to join but you might have such a great time that you will want to join.

 

Register today!!!!!!
