The New Jersey League for Nursing (NJLN) is the only organization in New Jersey in which registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, allied healthcare providers, those providing employment for health care providers, nursing educators and consumers network and foster leadership while promoting the positive image of nursing.

in memory of gail hammond

It is with much sadness that we share with the membership the untimely loss of our dedicated Executive Director, Gail Hammond.

We recently celebrated Gail as our ”Heart and Soul” Award recipient in November 2015. We were starting to digest the thought of her upcoming retirement, which was planned for December 2016. Unfortunately, as it has been said “life is what happens when we are busy making plans” and in this case, the final stage of life. We lost Gail on August 21, 2016. She will be forever in the hearts of the NJLN.

Gail’s final request was for her family and friends to continue to support this organization that she loved for the past 35years.

Due to the untimely death of our Executive Director, Gail Hammond,
and the re-structuring that the organization had previously been planning,
we regret to inform you that the Gala has been cancelled.

However the NJLN promises a wonderful return of the autumn Gala on November 3, 2017.

please save the date now for the upcoming event. it is only a year away!
