5 Nursing Organizations Every Nurse Should Join

National nursing associations or local organizations gives nurses access to risk management education, best practices in patient care, as well as peer networks to advance their career

Being a member of a nursing association, whether at a national level or belonging to a local chapter, provides nurses with access to continuing education, annual conferences, newsletters full of up-to-date industry information, best practice advice, a network of peers to connect with, as well as local networking events to attend. CM&F has protected the personal livelihood of nurses for many years with superior nursing malpractice insurance.

To show our appreciation to those professionals who show dedication to their career by participating in membership associations for nurses, we often will extend a discount, pending regulatory approval by states agencies, to members for our comprehensive, affordable nursing insurance coverage. Below is a list of nursing associations for you to check out as you look to expand your career or knowledge of the profession.
