Chapter Information

The Central Virginia PCNA Chapter was started in 2005 by Suzanne Fuhrmeister and Regina Stottlemyer. It covers the Central Virginia region including Charlottesville, Richmond, Fredericksburg, Culpeper, Waynesboro, Harrisburg and Lexington. Members consist of registered nurses, nurse practitioners, registered dietitians, and exercise physiology staff from cardiac rehab, acute care, clinics, university medical centers, private and community hospitals and physician offices.

The Central Virginia PCNA Chapter holds four quarterly meetings per year and hosts a PCNA regional meeting or program most years.

Our local chapter is comprised of a variety of health care professionals from Respiratory Therapists to Nurse Practitioners. Our goal is to provide fellowship, networking and continuing education opportunities while striving to provide the best care for our cardiac patients and the community.
