Upcoming OAAPN Board Opportunities

Are you interested in joining the OAAPN Board of Directors in advocating for Ohio APRNs? We are always looking for members to help serve Ohio APRNs in Board of Director positions, serve on OAAPN committees, and in our local chapters. In addition to open board positions, please monitor your email from the Ohio Board of Nursing as it relates to openings on the Ohio Board of Nursing and the OBN APRN Advisory Committee. We hope you will please consider sharing your voice in support of Ohio APRNs by joining the OAAPN Board or helping lead Ohio nurses by obtaining OAAPN endorsement for an open OBN position!


If you think you may be interested in any of these upcoming open board positions, please reach out to execdirector@oaapn.org.
