There are dozens of ways to extend your education beyond the class or skills lab
Part of what makes a health care professional a professional is a keen interest in the work of their peers, understanding new breakthroughs, and working together to form powerful coalitions and associations. You can get a jumpstart on your career, network, and training by joining student organizations at IUFW.
There are several nationally-recognized associations just for nurses, including:
- American Assembly for Men in Nursing
- American Association of Colleges of Nursing
- American Nurses Association
- Indiana State Nurses Association
- National Student Nurses’ Association
Participation in these organizations are often free or low-cost for nursing students. Like any professional association or member organization, you get out of them what you put in. Do more than add your name to the list—get involved, volunteer, serve on committees or boards, and forge deep connections. The payoff will be rewarding for you in the years to come.
