About Local Councils

Building communities of Catholic Nurses is especially helpful at the local level. We are always seeking motivated nurses to help build relationships within their local diocese. Local and regional councils are affiliated with NACN-USA, yet are independent entities.

Look for your local council below. If you don’t see one in your diocese, contact us today and get one started. We have a team to assist you!

If you have an established local or regional council that would like to affiliate with the NACN-USA, contact us at CatholicNurses@NACN-USA.org.
