I am new to AllNurse (Hello!) and also new to the nursing field as a new nurse. I work in critical care, more specifically stepdown ICU at a trauma 1 hospital. It's pretty advanced compared to other stepdown units so it's pretty much ICU. Nonetheless, I wanted recommendation on which professional organizations to join. I was pretty active in nursing school
and attended multiple conferences with ANA (which I'm no longer a part of). I love to read about EVB practices and implementing them.
I recently became a member of ACCN and wanted to explore other organizations to join. I did a little research a found that ANA is unfavored as a RN.
Many advice or recommendations are appreciated.
Once again, hello everyone!
