PERONL is an organization for nursing leaders from within health care and health education, representing membership from Eastern Pennsylvania. PERONL is an affiliated local group of Pennsylvania Organization of Nurse Leaders (PONL) and the American Organization of Nurse Leaders (AONE).
We encourage the nurse leaders of Pennsylvania to maintain membership and participate in the activities organized within our region. PERONL serves to promote a strong and consistent link for nursing leadership throughout our region.
The purpose of PERONL is to advance the development of effective leadership in Nursing and to advise appropriate parties on matters relative to the delivery of nursing care, such as:
Victoria Chestnut, DNP, MBA, RN, NEA-BC
Lehigh Valley Health Network
Immediate Past Chair
Emerging Nurse Leader
The PERONL Board meets bi-monthly to discuss items such as membership, finances, legislative priorities, and hot topics related to health care. These meetings are open to all PERONL members.
Throughout the year, PERONL offers educational sessions with guest speakers presenting topics of interest to nursing leaders. These meetings usually occur in the morning at a local hospital in the PERONL region.
