Im currently a student and have been looking into nursing associations or organizations but dont know very much about them. I saw membership dues are cheaper as a student than an individual. which should i join and why? Do employers ask about affiliations?

Welcome to allnurses.com

We moved your thread to the LPN/LVN Student forum for the best reply.

We hope you enjoy allnurses.

At our college, we are a part of the NFLPN (What is the NFLPN? All About the NFLPN) and that is strictly for LPNs and LPN students. Our dues are $25 per year and they offer scholarships, recognition for high GPAs (stoles and pins upon graduation), and lots of other opportunities. I have also heard that the ANA (About ANA) is also really good. It is more expensive, though. Best of luck! :)

(LPNs can't join the ANA -- it is an RN-only organization.)
