Specialty Practice Networks ~ SPN Central

Welcome to SPN Central, the home base for ANNA's Specialty Practice Networks (SPNs). SPNs are a benefit of ANNA membership and provide you with opportunities to network with other nurses in the various nephrology subspecialties. SPNs enable you to connect with colleagues with similar interests, discuss nursing issues and concerns, and collaborate to create solutions to today's practice challenges.
