Model 1: Starting A New Chapter with One School of Nursing

In this model, one school of nursing works by itself and starts a new chapter that is centered at its university.   

Benefits to choosing this model include:

  • Fewer logistical issues for meetings and events
  • Easier to track financial matters
  • School has own chapter identity

Challenges to choosing this model include:

  • Smaller membership
  • Fewer potential volunteers/chapter leaders
  • Less financial resources

To start a new chapter with one school of nursing, groups shall progress through each phase of development, systematically completing all tasks outlined within each phase of development. After completion of phases 1, 2, and 3, groups pursuing chapter charter status will request and complete a Chapter Charter Application as part of the phase 4 process.
