Why do nurses join professional associations?

  1. 0 Greetings all,

    I am looking for studies on reasons nurses join professional associations. I know they're out there, but I haven't found a combination of search terms that returns they types of studies I'm looking for.

    Any ideas?

    As far as I know, nurses join the professional organization for them to be updated with the latest trends in their field; share their experiences; monitor their professional ethics and conduct; for continuing education; and etc.

    Is this for an advanced degree where you need peer reviewed resources?

    If not, I would recommend you look to specific professional nursing organizations. I would look at their websites and see what you can find.
