Important Notice

Given the current economic climate and need to maintain the high level of benefits our members have come to expect from NAHN, a new membership dues structure will go into effect on January 1, 2024. General and affiliate members will see a $25 increase, with $20 going to NAHN National and $5 going to chapters.

The increased dues will help NAHN continue to offer annual benefits valued at over $500 per year, including advocacy for nurse's rights and patients; over 40 hours of free or discounted continuing nursing education; a quarterly printed journal; tuition discounts at partner universities; student scholarships; discounted registration to the annual conference and policy summit; networking through local chapters; and more!

NAHN members who expire on or before 5/31/24 can renew at the current rate until 12/31/23. If you have any questions, please contact our office at or 859-469-5800.

Your continued support is vital to our association's success, and we want to ensure that your investment in the National Association of Hispanic Nurses remains valuable. We look forward to continuing our work together, making NAHN an even stronger and more dynamic community for all.
