Benefits of Membership

There are many great reasons to join NPCNA! As a dedicated group of professionals, we enjoy networking with colleagues, sharing ideas, learning something new and working together to advance our field.

Please explore our website, get to know what we're all about, and join NPCNA today! We're looking forward to welcoming you into our dynamic and active organization!

Just a few of the many benefits of membership include:

  • Subscription to our bi-annual E-Newsletter
  • Access to our private online member area, which includes discussion forums, news, articles and more
  • Advance notice and discounted registration at our educational conferences
  • Eligiblity for our Excellence in Pediatric Cardiology Nursing education scholarship
  • Opportunities to network and connect with others in the Pediatric Cardiology Nursing field
  • And much more!

We currently offer two types of membership:

Active Membership- $40 annually
Any registered nurse licensed in the United States who is interested in the care of children with acquired or congenital heart disease and is in good standing with the licensing agency in his/her state is eligible for membership. Active members are entitled to vote, chair committees, and serve on the Board of Directors.

Associate Membership- $40 annually
Any LVN/LPN, non-nurse professional, or student who is interested in the care of children with acquired or congenital heart disease. Associate members may not vote, hold office, or chair committees.

The networking opportunities I have had through NPCNA have been wonderful! I enjoy hearing about the nursing practices at other institutions and meeting other nurses who are taking care of patients with the same issues as our patients.
