Welcome to NJ Society of Gastroenterology Nurses & Associates Website (NJSGNA)

NJSGNA.org is dedicated to supporting SGNA’s national mission, vision and goals. NJ SGNA is divided into three regions based on either mailing address or place of employment. Members are able to join the region of their choice. Through this website we strongly encourage attendance to any regional meetings and tri-regional networking and support. Each region offers free contact hours for members at 4-5 meetings per year and at an annual fall Tri-regional conference. Currently this site serves both Northern NJ and Central NJ regions with the anticipation of the Ocean Monmouth region joining in the future.
