Where do I find a copy of NASN's bylaws?

What is the correct way to list my nursing credentials?

NASN recommends highest earned degree, mandated requirements (i.e. licensure), state designations or requirements, national certifications, awards and honors, other certifications.  If highest earned degree is not in nursing, then highest nursing degree may be included after highest earned degree. Example: MEd, BSN, RN, APN, NCSN, FNASN.  Check your NASN member profile to see how your credentials are listed in our database.

Can I pay my dues in installments?

NASN members can pay their dues in one annual payment or in quarterly installments. This is called the Billing Frequency. If a member selects quarterly billing frequency, the annual dues plus an annual fee of 5% is spread out over the membership year. NASN will automatically charge the member's credit card every three months for a portion equal to one-fourth of the total amount. The automatic payments will continue into the next membership year unless the member notifies NASN to terminate the dues.  
NOTE: Contact NASN if you need to update your payment information.
