The Southeastern Pennsylvania Organization of Nurse Leaders was chartered in 1986 as the Southeastern Pennsylvania Organization of Nurse Executives as an affiliation of the Pennsylvania Organization of Nurse Leaders (PONL). The name of the organization was changed to Southeastern Pennsylvania Organization of Nurse Leaders to reflect a changing philosophy that focused on nursing leadership. The primary mission of the original organization was, and remains today, to be a vehicle for networking and information exchange among nurse executives. The organization has evolved to include some 200 members, with the inclusion of all nurses in leadership positions being eligible for membership. SEPONL is a non-profit, personal membership society which promotes excellence in the practice of nursing administration.
The Southeastern Pennsylvania Organization of Nurse Leaders (SEPONL) is the regional chapter for the state organization, the Pennsylvania organization of Nurse Leaders (PONL). Both Organizations offer numerous member benefits, including:
