NP Council Geographic Regions

These NCNA NP Council regions are an integral part of communication flow, networking and education among NCNA NPs. Non-NCNA members are encouraged to attend a few meetings to check out the benefits; then are expected to join NCNA and the NP Council to help you get the most out of this regional structure. Members are welcomed to participate in any regional group that is convenient. Regional Liaison Person(s) (RLPs) are the contacts for each region.

Note to Region RLPs: Send any meeting/event notices to be posted in your area to NCNA.
