Letter from the President

Greetings and Salutations Membership,

My name is Lois Greene and I am grateful to be here to serve as your president of NJSNA Region 3 (Union and Essex counties.) My desire is to share my gifts, strengths, and time to support the organization’s mission. For any that don’t know, the NJSNA mission is: to work for the improvement of health standards and the availability of health care services for all people; to stimulate and promote the professional development of nurses.

NJSNA is the only organization that represents the interests of all registered nurses, regardless of area of specialization, clinical setting, or work environment. Membership gives nurses the opportunity to meet and network and work with other professionals. The “membership moments” as I like to call them, often lead to priceless guidance for career and life advancement. I speak from personal experience when I say I have met and become lifetime friends with amazing nurses that care about their profession and each other. It’s 2022 and I know so many are mentally, emotionally, and physically exhausted. Our interactions will focus on advancing nursing, building relationships, and just having fun. We need it.

To be effective we have to have a strategy that will contribute to advancing our profession and our personal development. My goal is to keep you informed and make sure that information is relevant.

Our current strategic priorities align with our Parent organization NJSNA. Our goals are focused on but are not limited to:

Legislation: Review significant legislation that impacts healthcare and issues that impact nurses. Participate in phone-to-action grassroots lobbying.

Membership: Develop relationships that build collaboration with colleagues and future nursing students.

Leadership: Establish opportunities for mentorship and leadership development- Pick a position and we will, coach, share, and provide resume-building opportunities.

Education: NJSNA is a provider unit for continuing education. Membership will provide opportunities to gain clinical knowledge and information on hot topics that impact nurses.

In conclusion, my vision for NJSNA Region 3 is to educate, support, and empower nurses to live their best lives. I commit to doing my best to inspire you to continue to love the profession you chose.

Please keep an eye on our website for updates and information.
