OADN State Chapter Roster

Chapters are an important way to collaborate at the local level.  OADN chapters 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.

Through the chartering of State Chapters, OADN provides the opportunity for members to network and provide educational events and collaboration at the local level.  It is the chapters where enthusiasm and interest in associate degree nursing come alive.  OADN Chapters serve as a vital link between people within the chapters, as well as between the chapter and the National Office.

Involvement in a local chapter is a very exciting way to collaborate and pool the talents and expertise of people.  Additionally, it creates collegial relationships in which individuals can share ideas and concerns.

There are 16 official OADN State Chapters. The OADN National Office provides assistance to Chapters and forming Chapters.    Please contact Harriet McClung,   if you would like information on starting a OADN Chapter.
