Serving Northeast Ohio Hospitals for 100+ Years

GCONE - Greater Cleveland Organization of Nurse Executives

OONELogoThe Greater Cleveland Organization of Nurse Executives (GCONE), an affiliate chapter of the Ohio Organization of Nurse Executives (OONE), 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, GCONE 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 GCONE. Join today and start making a difference in the future of nursing! A two-year membership is $40. Click here to become a member.

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