OCCNS is a special interest group of ONA that was established in the early 1980’s as a group in which practicing clinical nurse specialists (CNSs) in Oregon could share information, influence practice, participate in relevant legislation and education, and address issues and challenges to their practice. Since it’s beginning, OCCNS has successfully obtained recognition for CNSs in the state by the Oregon State Board of Nursing (1999), and obtained prescriptive and dispensing privileges for CNSs who need them (2007). In addition, OCCNS is an affiliate of the National Association of Clinical Nurse Specialists (NACNS) thus offering a setting in which members of NACNS can link to state-level CNS activities and issues.
