What is a chapter?
Chapters are groups of nurses who are members of the South Carolina Nurses Association who have been or hereafter may be organized based on shared nursing practice interests or geographical boundaries who adhere to the SCNA Memoradum of Agreement (MOA) for Chapters and have been approved by the majority vote of the board of directors of this association. All members of SCNA are eligible to join any of the Chapters featuring practice areas. There is no additional fee to join any Chapter. Contact Rosie Robinson at firstname.lastname@example.org to join, or fill out the consent to participate form that is located in the members only section of our website.
Currently there are 7 SCNA Chapters.
SCNA members are welcome to create new chapters to meet member interests. SCNA members may belong to any number of chapters they desire. Chapters work either at a local level (geographical) or on issues of nursing practice (practice based). They offer opportunities to members who wish to work on specific issues or to promote nursing in their communities. Chapters may meet either in person or electronically. Chapters may provide continuing education, forums, chapter wide meetings, meetings with local legislators, or provide a social meeting for members.

APRN is the anagram for Advanced Practice Registered Nurse. The anagram APRN is being used more and more by legislative and governing bodies to describe the collection of registered nurses (RNs) that practice in the extended role or practice beyond the normal role of basic registered nursing. The APRN needs special education beyond the four-year baccalaureate degree in nursing. In fact, most APRNs need a master’s degree. The APRN role not only encompasses additional education, but also is a role requiring extra responsibility, critical thinking and judgment. The APRN in South Carolina must hold a national certification in his/her area of expertise.
