Please contact email@example.com if you're interested in forming a chapter or affiliate group with OADN.
OADN Chapters are an important way to collaborate at the local level. These groups serve as a vital link between people within the chapter and the national organization. Involvement in a state chapter provides OADN members with the opportunities and means to collaborate and pool the talents and expertise of people. OADN chapters also provide additional educational offerings to members through annual conventions and a forum for staying informed on issues in nursing education within their own state.
In 2018, and OADN Board of Directors and Membership approved bylaws changes to allow the creation of OADN Affiliates to work alongside the existing OADN Chapters, strengthening ties to organizations working at the state level across the nation.
OADN Affiliates are state level groups with a strong interest in nursing education and associate degree nursing. These groups may include both OADN members and non-members who do not work directly in associate degree nursing. Affiliates are required to sign an MOU with OADN that focuses on communications and information sharing. Unlike OADN Chapters, OADN Affiliates are not required to maintain a prescribed governance structure or 501c3 status.
Additionally, OADN maintains professional membership in the Council of Nursing Education in Washington State (CNEWS).
