To promote scholarship and academic excellence in the profession of nursing, the Organization for Associate Degree Nursing (OADN), has established the Alpha Delta Nu Honor Society and has made provisions for the establishment of Institutional Honor Society Chapters.
The objective of the OADN Alpha Delta Nu Nursing Honor Society shall be to recognize the academic excellence of students in the study of Associate Degree Nursing. The society shall encourage the pursuit of advance degrees in the profession of nursing as well as continuing education as a life-long professional responsibility. Additionally, the society shall participate in the recruitment of qualified individuals into the profession of nursing.
An Update from the Alpha Delta Nu National Chair - May 17, 2019
Exciting update and news!! The OADN Board of Directors approved to eliminate the annual renewal fee for the Alpha Delta Nu Chapters effective immediately. The OADN Board of Directors believes Alpha Delta Nu is one of the many benefits of OADN membership. As a reminder, the nursing program must maintain program membership with OADN. Chapter advisors can be, but are not required to be, individual members.
Annual chapter reports will continue to be due July 1. The link for the annual report can be found here https://www.oadn.org/about-us/honor-society-2 Please use the Survey monkey link embedded on that document to complete the report. If you have any photos available related to your chapter activities please send for posting. If you have already completed the survey monkey report – thank you !
Thank you as always for your support of associate degree nursing education and OADN.
