The Nurse Assistance Network (NAN), an official committee of the Oregon Nurses Foundation, is focused on building resources for nurses with substance use and mental disorders to aid them in building and maintaining a recovery lifestyle.
NAN is looking to recruit and train interested nurses to be Nurse Peer Advocates (NPA). The NPA is a volunteer role that may include responding to inquiry calls, explaining options for qualified evaluation, intervention and treatment, and providing other support for early recovery. The NPA role may also include facilitating nurse peer support meetings, building awareness of NAN services, and providing education to others in the profession.
Stay tuned for future training session dates and opportunities.
