Special Interest Groups

ARNNL recognizes Special Interest Groups (SIGs) as valuable to the promotion of the profession, from enhancing quality of care and standards of practice, to developing knowledge and competency through sharing amongst peers. Special Interest Groups are comprised of registered nurses who have a common concern for professional development in a defined area of nursing practice, education, administration or research.

Review our Guidelines for ARNNL Special Interest Groups to learn more about establishing and maintaining a special interest group. Interested parties must complete an Application for Special Interest Group.

The ARNNL provides support to assist Special Interest Groups to promote evidence-informed practice in their area of specialty. Learn more about ARNNL's SIG Promotion of Evidence-Based Practice Funding Guidelines.

For information related to Special Interest Groups, please contact a practice consultant.
