Our Chapter

Starting as a small group of ORL nurses wanting to network, we have grown to 40 members. We have many original members active in our chapter. We are nurses caring for adults and children with a variety of ORL issues. We have involvement in many hospitals though out Maryland and DC including Johns Hopkins Hospital, VA Medical Center, Greater Baltimore Medical Center, National Institute of Health, George Washington University Hospital as well as many outpatient centers and offices. We participate in community outreach and education. Our chapter is actively involved in our National SOHN Organization, participating in meeting as presenters, planners, moderators, and coordinators. Our activity has earned us Chapter Excellence Award for many years.
