Professional Organization Membership

MyMichigan Health supports and encourages nurses to join a professional organization in their specialty area. Examples of professional organizations that nurses can join are the American Association of Critical Care Nurses (AACN); the Oncology Nurses Association (ONA); or the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetrics, and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN) just to name a few. Professional organizations provide a wealth of resources and knowledge on legislative issues, scholarships, evidence-based practice changes, research opportunities, and seminars.

If you are interested, please contact Colleen Markel, Manager of Workforce Development, at to learn how to get reimbursement for the initial membership costs.
