Nursing Associations

  1. I'm wondering how many of you are members of nursing associations? Is there a benefit to joining one? Joining the ANA will get me automatically enrolled in the MARN, which is our state nursing association. So what is MNA? Are they a different type of nursing association? Please enlighten me! Should I join, one, some, all, none? The MNA fee is pretty cheap, especially for a new grad like myself, but the ANA/MARN yearly fee is a little steep.

    Thanks for any advice you can give me :
