NASN Strong

NASN members are more influential than they know! Through the influence of NASN members, 1,500+ individuals have joined NASN.

NASN Members who participate in the NASN Strong initiative earn $10 in NASN e-commerce credits for each new member referred. Credits can be used towards dues renewal payments, NASN annual conference registration, and purchases in the NASN bookstore.

Guidelines for NASN members:

Refer a colleague and receive a $10 NASN e-commerce credit.

Individuals referred must be brand new members or lapsed members who are reinstating.  

Refer as many individuals as you can.

Credits earned can be redeemed by NASN members only.  If a membership lapses and is cancelled, any earned credits connected to the membership expires.

Credits earned will automatically be applied to online purchases and can only be used with online purchases.

Credits earned may be applied to a dues renewal payment online, a bookstore purchase online, or a live program registration online.

Credits will expire one year after being earned.

Tips for participating members:

  • Identify prospective members -- identify individuals in your professional network who could benefit from NASN membership. When you are networking and meeting new individuals, consider asking them if they are a member of NASN. Ask about their professional development needs and what types of information or resources would be useful to them. Based on their responses, highlight the NASN resources that address expressed needs.

  • Refer prospective members to NASN's website.
  • Share your testimonial about how NASN enhanced your practice -- remember why you joined and how your membership experience with NASN has benefited your practice; maybe you had an unforgettable experience at a meeting or conference, or joined because you read The Journal of School Nursing or the NASN School Nurse and gained  valuable information.  Share examples with your colleagues.
