Central Jersey Chapter

Latest News

Our Chapter is meeting on a regular basis, although we have cut it down to four times a year. (April, June, October & December- no meetings in February or during the summer) We have a speaker presentation with nursing contact hours at each meeting. We have over 150 members in our chapter, but many are Chapter only members. Approximately 50 members attend each meeting.

Our next meeting will be held in October.

We complete a community service project each year, usually collecting gloves. mittens, socks and other items of clothing to give to homeless or those in shelters, and we also provide items for the Home for Aged Women in Burlington, NJ,  such as coffee, tissues, soap, and other staples.

Each year we provide our own convention scholarship award and send 1 member to the NGNA convention.  We also provide a High School Scholarship award to a senior student who plans to attend nursing school.
