Listing Organizations

  1. Someone offered the advice of listing professional organizations. For the life of me, I can't find the thread that it was originally listed in.

    However, where you would put organizations you join on a resume? In a separate section? Under interests? I haven't made my "soon to be an RN" resume yet.

    Normally it would be listed in an "Affiliations" section. In most cases, a simple inventory of your affiliations, presented in order of importance, will suffice. When your involvement included election to an office or other leadership position, mention the title either before or after the organization, but be consistant. If you held an office but are no longer in that office, preface the title with "past." It's not necessary to include the date when you joined each organization. If you need to save space, you can list the organizations in paragraph form with ";" seperating each organization.

    Examples are:
    American Academy of Nurse Practitioners
    Society of Pediatric Nurses
    Sigma Theta Tau Honor Society of Nursing
    Oncology Nursing Society
    National Association of School Nurses
    NSNA (National Student Nurses Association) active member, current
    National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners
    Officer in <Association Name>
    Association of Womens Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses
    American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP)
