In July the ISPAN sent invoices for renewal of your membership. We currently have a 70% renewal rate for the year. We've received many calls from members not aware that their membership automatically renews each year. More

Last week, the hospital where I work, after countless hours of work and dedication by the nurses, faculty and staff, achieved the highly prestigious Magnet® designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). Only 392 hospitals out of more than 6,000 across the United States have earned Magnet status. More

Fall is here and it is time to get ready for the ISPAN Annual Convention in beautiful San Diego. In fact, when you receive this newsletter, the convention is only a few days away.
