Addiction support available for nurses

The Nurses Peer Support Network (NPSNetwork) is a newly formed nonprofit organization in Minnesota for nurses who are living with the disease of addiction and seeking support in recovery and/or professional re-entry. If you are a nurse or know a nurse who is struggling with addiction or in recovery, please see the NPSNetwork website, visit their Facebook page, or download this brochure (PDF, 156KB) for more information.

Meetings are held the third Tuesday of the month at 7:00 PM at Bethlehem Lutheran Church, 720 South Second Street in Mankato (map).
