Join a Local AANN Chapter

Get more involved in your professional community and meet neuro nurses near you!

Joining an AANN chapter will allow you to connect with other nurses to discuss how to advance your practice, keep up-to-date on neuroscience requirements, earn continuing education credits, and meet throughout the year at local nursing events. To learn more about which chapter is right for you, find your state below. 

Join a chapter by phone at 847.375.4733. If you join a chapter in the middle of your national membership cycle, your chapter dues will be prorated.

If you are a local chapter leader, or would like to start your own chapter, visit the Chapter Leader Resource Area for additional information and downloads regarding your professional nursing organization.

If you would like to join a local chapter and add it to your existing AANN membership, please visit the online store. You can also join a chapter by contacting our member services department at 847-375-4733. If you add a chapter to your existing AANN membership, your chapter membership end date will be synched to your AANN membership end date.
