Looking for timely, relevant information about nursing and public health issues?

Consider joining the PHS Nursing Listserv.

The PHS Nursing Listserv functions as a communication mechanism for all PHS Nurses, both Civil Service and Commissioned Corps. You can expect to see information from your nursing peers on a variety of topics such as: public policy, special initiatives or N-PAC supported events, clinical practice updates, continuing education information, emerging topics in nursing and healthcare, N-PAC awards and opportunities for participation in different N-PAC activities.

The listserv is for official government use only. The listserv is not a tool to be used for things such as dialog, recruiting for groups, political activity, or advertising and marketing for groups other than the N-PAC such as associations and public or private entities, etc. Information about jobs, retirements, and non-N-PAC announcements may be posted on the N-PAC website and/or N-PAC Facebook page. The N-PAC wants to ensure that information provided is relevant to all its members.

The Listserv gives you options to digest messages so that you do not add to your email overload. It even lets you go back and view previously posted messages through an easily accessible archive system.
