Affiliates are state or U.S. Territory school nurse organizations. They can also be a school nurse group comprised of registered professional school nurse members serving schools outside the U.S.
Each affiliate has a seat on the NASN Board of Directors. The person holding this seat is referred to as the NASN Director.
NASN has 50 affiliates in 48 states, the District of Columbia, and one for DoDDS school nurses and school nurses practicing at international schools.
