AMSN Chapter Toolkit - Chapter Charter Petition

Chartered Chapter CertificateCongratulations on your decision to establish your own AMSN Chapter Charter!

The Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses (AMSN) chapters compliment and are a vital component of the National Office. Each local chapter is an important mechanism for recruiting, retaining and encouraging participation in AMSN nationally.

Chapters are a way for local AMSN members to connect with each other to share ideas and to raise awareness of the med-surg specialty.

AMSN chapters are comprised only of AMSN members.
