Mission Statement:

ARN's mission is to promote and advance professional rehabilitation nursing practice through education, advocacy, collaboration, and research to enhance the quality of life for those afflicted by disability and chronic illness.

We are also the proud recipients of the 2005, 2006, 2007 national Website Award and the 2007 Best Beginning Newsletter Award.

In 2008 a new award structure was put into place. Southeast Texas Chapter ARN is the proud recipient of the 2008 Local Chapter of the Year Award,

This newly created award will be given each year to recognize a local chapter that meet the following criteria:

• Provided an extraordinary educational event above and beyond the requirements designated by ARN. The educational event must reflect
   principles of the current trends in rehabilitation nursing.
• Has excelled in regularly communicating with its members.
• Has exceptional membership recruitment and retention methods.
• Has made a significant contribution to the community in the last year.

Our primary purpose is to promote professional growth and excellence in rehabilitation nursing through knowledge, education and networking.
