Join the Conversation

GRNEN has officially launched our Networking Tool for rural and remote nurses!

GRNEN’s mission is to connect nurses, educators, researchers and students who share a passion for improving the health of rural communities and an appreciation for the role nurses play in serving these communities.

Our vision was to create the perfect place for these individuals to connect at no cost to them.
