Kansas Organization of Nurse Leaders

The Kansas Organization of Nurse Leaders (KONL) is looking forward to an exciting year, as we continue to work together to have a voice in state regulatory and legislative issues, design and implement an effective mentoring program for aspiring nurses and communicate up-to-the minute nursing issues to members via e-mail and a new Web site. The annual KONL spring seminar is known for its outstanding presentations and offers nursing CEUs for attendees. Membership in KONL is open to all registered nurses, regardless of position or work setting, and currently has 234 members. Dues are $60 through March 31. After March 31, dues are $75. KONL welcomes member participation in committee activities within the organization.
