"Nurses Network" is a new addition to Triangle Region Meetings. As you enter the meeting, you'll be given instructions for three separate opportunities to share 3 minutes of conversation with another attendee. Perhaps you'll be matched with a first-timer, a faculty from a Triangle institution, a Board member, or a prospective employer. It will be your chance to "meet, greet, and connect" with Triangle Members. Come try it at the next posted meeting!
