Starting a chapter

If you are interested in furthering the profession of Addictions Nursing, have a good energy level and high resistance to naysayers – have we got a job for you! How about starting a Country, State, Bistate or Tristate IntNSA Chapter?

What a wonderful way to bring fellow Addictions Nurses together to not only educate each other but to network with one another and most importantly, to support one another. In this day and time of Behavioral Healthcare, it is essential that we have opportunities to meet with one another and discuss the future of our specialty as well as our jobs.

IntNSA will support your endeavour by sending you a Chapter Formation Handbook, (which has everything you need to know about starting a chapter).

It is the vision of the International Nurses Society on Addictions (IntNSA) to be a “global leader in addictions nursing”. Our strength comes through our members. It is the goal of our Society to attract and retain full-fledged members of IntNSA from around the world. In pursuit of that goal, local, State, and national Chapters often play an important role in introducing prospective members to addictions nursing, and to IntNSA. For these reasons, IntNSA supports the creation of these chapters, and sets forth guidelines to assist in this process.
