Get Involved

How will you help NANN make a difference for neonatal nurses, patients, and their families? NANN members have several opportunities to support the neonatal nurse community, while networking and connecting with colleagues.


Connect with fellow neonatal nurses and nurse practitioners through NANN's exclusive community forums. Members can discuss protocols, best practices, and the latest in neonatal news with nurses stationed across the continent.


NANN's chapters serve more than 2,000 members at the grassroots level. With a presence in over thirty states and opportunities for members in areas such as advocacy, continuing education, and professional development, chapters provide unique opportunities to support the neonatal nurse community.

Special Interest Groups

NANN's special interest groups (SIGs) provide forums that allow members with similar interests and challenges to easily interact with each other and develop extended resource bases.

Volunteer Opportunities

NANN and NANNP issue calls for national volunteers on an as-needed basis. We advertise our annual call for volunteers in various e-communications as well as our home page. Occasionally, we fill positions that arise during the year and announce those openings in a similar manner.
