Chapter Introduction

Get to Know Your Chapter Leadership Team!

The goal of the Northern California Chapter is to bring PCNA to the local area through ongoing professional education.

Each year, we hold two free educational events to educate nurses on the latest cardiovascular health care topics and provide opportunities for professional networking.
