NNASA is growing and we are therefore excited to inform you of the creation of Special Interest Groups within the NNASA structure. It was evident that the National Board couldn’t achieve all we wanted to, without some extra hands and expertise. The President of each operational committee will sit on the National NNASA Board. The following groups have been formed and are in their infancy and urgently require group/committee members.

We are therefore calling for the nomination of nurses or volunteers with a special interest or skill in any of the areas listed below to sit on these committees. There will be a 3 year term of office. Successful candidates will be expected to become NNASA members. Please contact us to nominate nurses or volunteers.
