ANA's affiliates are specialty nursing organizations that hold organizational-level membership of ANA. Working together, ANA and these organizations seek to share information and collaborate in finding solutions to issues that face the nursing profession, regardless of specialty. Affiliates each have the right to one vote in ANA’s Membership Assembly. While each organization maintains its own autonomy, the nursing profession and health care consumers benefit from opportunities to speak with aligned voices as a result of the collaboration that occurs with ANA and our affiliates.
Premier Organizational Affiliates also have the added benefit of offering their members electronic membership of ANA.
*Organizational Affiliate Premier members create stronger synergy by purchasing discounted ANA e-memberships for their individual members. Individual members of OA Premier Organizations receive digital access to ANA’s journals and e-newsletters, free and discounted access to a range of professional development programs, and through their membership, strengthen ANA’s advocacy on behalf of nurses.

Also affiliated with ANA are the Constituent and State Nurses Associations as well as the subsidiaries, American Nurse Foundation, American Nurses Credentialing Center, and the American Academy of Nursing.
