Thank you for visiting the Chicago Area Nursing Staff Development Organization (CANSDO). Please explore our website, join us at a meeting, and/or contact us by email with questions.
We’re an active group of nursing professional development specialists and healthcare educators from a variety of practice settings throughout the Chicagoland. We support direct patient caregivers and their leaders in providing safe and effective patient care. We share a desire to learn from each other and to develop our own professional practices. At each meeting we encourage networking and mentoring, offer educational opportunities of interest to nursing professional development specialists, and a brief business meeting. Meetings are scheduled every other month and alternate between suburban and urban member host sites.
