GCONL - Greater Cleveland Organization for Nursing Leadership

OONELogoThe Greater Cleveland Organization for Nursing Leadership, an affiliate chapter of the Ohio Organization for Nursing Leadership, was formed in 2004 by Northeast Ohio nurse leaders to promote nursing leadership, influence the position of quality healthcare and access, and redesign nursing delivery systems. As a center of excellence for clinical leadership, GCONL improves healthcare through legislation, education, technology, research, consultation, networking and information sharing.


Nurse executives and leaders within the Greater Cleveland-area, which includes Lorain, Cuyahoga, Lake, Geauga and Ashtabula counties, are invited to join GCONL. Join today and start making a difference in the future of nursing! Membership includes one year for 2020.

If your institution is a member of the Ohio Hospital Association, you are eligible to receive a free OONL membership. For more information, visit the OONL website
