NEW YORK NURSE: May 2011
“Networking — a word that as a new graduate had little meaning to me. But now, oh boy! NYSNA has opened many doors to contacts and opportunities that were totally unexpected and has taken my career in paths that I never dreamed. The main road that NYSNA has helped to forge for me was in writing and reviewing manuscripts for publication. Now in less than 10 years, I have written over 25 publications, including books, chapters and articles, and served on three editorial boards. Besides boosting your resumé by writing, participation in NYSNA’s peer reviewed publication Journal contributes to the professional development of its readers by helping practitioners stay current in today’s practice arenas through continuing education articles.”
— Peggy Jenkins, MS, CAS, CCRN, CNE; Professor of Nursing, Hartwick College, Oneonta, NY; Author of “Nurse to Nurse: ECG Interpretation”
