Why join a professional nursing organization?

What are some of the advantages of joining a professional nursing organization? Remaining current in your field or specialty, networking with other nurses and organizations, and continued learning. Professional nursing associations provide an opportunity for professional nurses to develop a bigger picture of nursing and health care overall.

Click here or visit our AAMC’s Nursing Web site at www.aahs.org/aamcnursing and click on Professional Organizations to visit some of the many groups our nurses have joined. 

Are you a member of a professional nursing organization right now? If so, which one?

    Missing from the list:
    Academy of Neonatal Nursing www.academyonline.org
    Association of Women’s Health, Obstetrics, and Neonatal Nurses www.awhonn.org

    I am a member of both of these organizations and their publications and conferences keep us up to date on the latest and greatest in our field. Our NICU Clinical Educator is presenting at the ANN conference next month in Washington, DC!
