|“It’s an exciting time to be with AHNA! We are transforming healthcare as we know it, and AHNA Networks are on the front lines. They are our voice in communities across the country.” |
|— Cindy Bultena, Past Leadership Council Network Coordinator |
More than 125 AHNA Chapters have been organized across the country to support the work of AHNA and holistic nursing. Chapters have been developed for educational purposes, to participate in community service, to reach new members, and/or for rest & restoration. Self-care and renewal are a crucial part of a holistic life, and are appropriate themes for Chapter meetings. The basis and structure of each Chapter, and the content and form of meetings are determined by the needs and interests of group members.
Every Chapter operates independently and interdependently as it supports and manifests AHNA’s vision in all its activities. Chapters also provide an avenue for membership development and contribute to the growth of AHNA.
