The Pediatric Endocrinology Nursing Society (PENS) was born in 1986 in the dreams of a small group of endocrine research study coordinators whose vision was to develop a network of pediatric endocrine nursing professionals. This strong, assertive, independent group of nurses formed a 15-member steering committee that officially founded the Society in 1987 as a non-profit corporation and elected its first president. The founders sought financial assistance and logistical support from the pharmaceutical industry and received it. They also mounted an aggressive membership drive. The results were readily apparent when 1988 saw the first issue of the PENS Reporter published, and the first annual PENS Conference held in Newport Beach, California.
