The Voice of Nursing Leadership in Pennsylvania

Log in


SWPONL is a strong, independent, and active professional organization for current and future nurse leaders from a variety of areas of practice. For over 30 years, SWPONL has provided a forum for nurse leaders from hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, community nursing areas, rehabilitation facilities, academia, and consulting to share current and relevant information affecting practice.  SWPONL engages nurse leaders in acting upon important pending legislation and other pertinent issues related to nursing practice and leadership, and provides multiple educational opportunities throughout the year.

SWPONL's Board of Directors believe that we can best serve the members by remaining an independent organization for nurse leaders in the region, continuing to strengthen our services to our members, strengthen our voice as leaders, and support the mission and values of the American Organization of Nurse Leaders (AONL).


The Southwestern Pennsylvania Organization of Nurse Leaders (SWPONL) is a non-profit, personal membership society which promotes excellence in the practice of nursing administration.  This is accomplished by:

  • Providing regularly scheduled networking opportunities for nurse leaders
  • Supporting research in nursing administration
  • Advancing the practice of nursing administration
  • Pursuing collaborative relationships with affiliated organizations


To position nurse leaders to influence the future of healthcare in Southwestern Pennsylvania.
