CSGNA Communities of Practice (CoP) are groups of Gastroenterology Nurses (RNs, NPs, and LPN/RPNs) who share a common interest in a specific GI Nursing area of specialization. CSGNA has developed these opportunities to develop a network to connect like-minded people, share individual and collective knowledge, develop practice guidelines and documents, and to stimulate collaborative learning.
