About Chapters

Only AMSN members can be members of AMSN chapters

The Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses (AMSN) chapters provide a way for AMSN members to connect with each other to share ideas and raise awareness of the medical-surgical specialty.

AMSN ChapterMembership in an AMSN chapter provides:

  • Opportunities to develop personally and professionally
  • Interaction with other medical-surgical nurses
  • Occasions to advocate for the specialty of medical-surgical nursing
  • Prospects for volunteer leadership experience

AMSN currently has more than 60 chapters throughout the continental US. Our first chapters began in 1991, and some are still active!
