On Thursday, February 21, 2019, local nurses from across the New Orleans Metro Area came together to participate in New Orleans District Nurses Association (NODNA) Monthly Meeting and Special Program. NODNA invited special guest, Andrew Mahoney, MSN, RN-BC, SANE-A, to present the topic, "Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault". Andrew's presentation led to a great discussion about identifying potential victims in a medical setting and the nurse's role in supporting victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Those in attendance are eligible to receive CNE hours. NODNA wants to give a special thank you to EJGH for hosting and to all the nurses that came out to support NODNA as we "Unite and Ignite". We hope to see you all next time!
