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.
