Honor Society

Alpha Delta Nu Honor Society

The mission of the Alpha Delta Nu Nursing Honor Society is to recognize the academic excellence of students in the study of Associate Degree Nursing. The society encourages the pursuit of advance degrees in the profession of nursing as well as continuing education as a life-long professional responsibility.

A Message from the Chair

Did you know that your OADN membership gives you access to the prestigious Alpha Delta Nu Honor Society? This is the ONLY honor society for Associate Degree Nursing students. I encourage you to consider establishing a chapter for your program to acknowledge student excellence. As part of the induction process, students take part in implementing service-learning projects that directly impact the health of their communities. They gain the opportunity to submit a poster abstract for the OADN Annual Convention highlighting the impact of their projects. This experience provides students with essential presentation and leadership skills in front of a national audience. In addition, student members who have demonstrated exceptional leadership and service are eligible for the Alpha Delta Nu Scholarships. This is an incredible opportunity for ADN students to include this recognition as they advance in their professional journey. I hope you will consider taking advantage of this membership benefit and establish an Alpha Delta Nu chapter.
