Learn How SGNA Creates Position Statements

Cynthia M. Friis, MEd BSN RN-BC, Associate Executive Director of Clinical Affairs, provides an overview of the process that SGNA takes to finalize its Position Statements in the new Practice Document Development Webinar. All documents are written by the SGNA Practice Committee, which develops practice-related strategies that assist in fulfilling SGNA’s mission and goals while meeting the needs of members and the industry. Before they are released, Position Statements undergo a rigorous review, copy editing and approval process by the SGNA Board of Directors, other key members and consultants.

Listen to the webinar to learn more about this process.
