Become an AANN Volunteer
One of the major reasons the American Association of Neuroscience Nurses (AANN) continues to grow and thrive is the many hours of work contributed by our dedicated volunteers.
We value the time and efforts of our volunteer members and invite you to join their growing ranks. Volunteering provides you with opportunities to network with other neuroscience nurses and to become a leader in the field. The time commitment required varies widely for each committee and there is something for everyone. Committee positions are typically posted early in the calendar year and terms start at or right after the Annual Educational Meeting. Shorter-term volunteer projects or task force opportunities are posted as they arise and terms vary depending on the project.
Open volunteer opportunities are listed on the NeuroNetwork volunteer page or below.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on volunteering opportunities.
Tri-Board Mentorship Program - Mentor
Any experienced neuroscience nurse that is an AANN member may apply to serve as a mentor. Those in either academic or private practice from all training backgrounds are encouraged to apply. The experienced mentor should be a source of support for nurses/student nurses, available to answer questions, provide insight, and encourage involvement within AANN, ABNN or AMWF. As a mentor, you will directly support our shared mission to advance your fellow neuroscience nurses. Please review the Tri-Board Mentorship Handbook for further information.
Term Length: TBD based on agreement with Mentee (typical length is 1 year)
Tri-Board Mentorship Program - Mentee
Mentee applicants must be AANN members and nurses with an interest in mentorship in the furthering of their neuroscience career. Successful mentees are willing to assume responsibility for their own learning and growth. They seek challenging assignments and responsibilities. While they are receptive to feedback and coaching by the mentor, they also are willing to constructively give feedback. Please review the Tri-Board Mentorship Handbook for further information.
