About Us

Hello and welcome to the Northern New Jersey Chapter of the Association of Rehabilitation Nurses.  We are busy planning the organization and structure for this new chapter of ARN. 
Our membership is open to nurses who work or live in the New Jersey counties of Bergen, Passaic, Essex, Hudson, Union, Somerset, Middlesex, Morris, Hunterdon, Warren, and Sussex.
Many organizational decisions will be made by the members during the first meetings to be held during May, June, and July in order to meet the National ARN chapter requirements.
Please join us for interesting educational programs, networking and fun!
During our first meeting the group decided a few things....
1.  For now we will meet at Kessler Institute in West Orange as this is central to most people.
2.  For now we will vote on what we should do for dinner at the next meeting.
3.  Officers were elected as follows:  President: Robin Bischoff; Vice President: Jane Mitchell;  Secretary:  Open;  Treasurer: Vickie Romel-Nichols
A Survey was conducted to poll members about their interests with the following results:
  • Suggestions for Educational Topics:  Family Education for SDOC Patients, Patient and caregiver education, increasing patient compliance, policy and procedure updates, concussions related to sports, research studies
  • Community Service Ideas: Awareness programs r/t mild TBI, Stroke awareness, offering community education, health fairs and bp screenings, importance of wearing a helmet, teaching kids and parents about concussion
