Is anyone a member of the nsna?
I'm not a member, but I'm trying to decide if its worth the money.
I am. I think it is if you active. I actually got a job via networking from nsna. It's not a magic organization. You need to be active to get anything out of it.
What do you mean be active?
I was vp of our schools SNA, and we got enough active members to be a part of Nsna. It's a great organization that you can tailor to fit your area/school. We did service projects, fundraiser a, lunch n learns etc. very busy, yes, but I won 3 different scholarships this year and I know that was part of it!
Oh wow that's wonderful!!! Congratulations!!!
Go to the meetings and conferences. Volunteer. Just don't have it be a resume filler.
I am a pre-nursing student and I am going to join. I didn't research it until I found out that it will help me get into the Nurse Residency I want to get in when I graduate. Also I will be able to network with a lot of different people and there are many benefits to joining. Here in GA, it's only $35 to join and $40 to renew which is nothing compared to what I paid when I became a member of the AAMA. I think that if you're serious about your nursing career, it's an extremely good investment. Good luck!
Thank you to the replies! I'm going to join this fall after I move to North Carolina. What's the AAMA? Wht didn't you like?
The AAMA is the American Association of Medical Assisting, it's a nationally recognized association for medical assistants, but you have to pay so much just to join. Also they say that the leader of your state chapter will reach out to you to let you know of all the activities and such going on so you can help out, but they never did, not even once. I won't renew it at all; now that is what I called a waste of money lol. The NSNA though is great, I'll be joining myself in 2 weeks. Aside from the scholarships, they have health and insurance that you can purchase for yourself and your family and also you get discounts on uniforms and accessories, even hotels. Not to mention it looks great on your resume. I say join and take advantage of it.
Awesome! I really appreciate all of this info. I'm going to join ASAP :-)
