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.
