NIARN is active in the community with educational experiences, an annual conference, networking with the larger parent ARN organization, and supporting nurses or other local organizations through partnerships. The more connections we have with Illinois hospitals the more effective we can be in raising awareness of the rehabilitation specialty and those the utilize such services.
NIARN believes every individual has worth and dignity. We believe that recipients of rehabilitation health care services have the right to receive professional nursing care of the highest quality. As an organization, we support these beliefs by offering a wide range of activities that help develop professional skills of our nurse members.
