Professional Organization Membership
MidMichigan Health supports and encourages nurses to join a professional organization in their specialty area. Examples of professional organizations that nurses can join are the American Association of Critical Care Nurses (AACN); the Oncology Nurses Association (ONA); or the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetrics, and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN) just to name a few. Professional organizations provide a wealth of resources and knowledge on legislative issues, scholarships, evidence-based practice changes, research opportunities, and seminars.
