President's Message
Riah Hoffman PhD, RN, CSN

I am very excited and honored as I begin my first year as the President of the Pennsylvania League for Nursing (PLN). Thank you to my Board of Directors, President-elect, and Past President for your support as I embark on this journey.

The PLN focuses of education in the state of Pennsylvania. The PLN accomplishes this by recognizing faculty through faculty awards given each year based on nomination and committee selection. The recipient(s) are invited to one of the area programs and presented with a monetary award, plaque, and appreciation for their leadership in nursing education. The PLN provides fall and spring programs, hosted by the three geographic areas that make up the PLN, which provide education on current issues in nursing education and health care and recruit membership to the PLN. The PLN also keeps its members informed of national and state-wide political issues and upholds the mission of the National League for Nursing at the state level.

As the current president of the PLN, I invite all nurse educators and nurses in the state of Pennsylvania to join us to foster the development of quality nursing education to meet the health care delivery needs of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
