My Story
Back in the days when we were experiencing the rapid growth of the World Wide Web, using floppy discs in our computer, and before the inception of the California nurse to patient ratios, I was introduced to ACNL by Barbara Patton who was my CNO at the same time. Barbara arranged for our hospital's nursing leaders to attend an ACNL Annual Conference. I still recall my excitement of being part of this knowledgeable, energetic group of nurse leaders from every part of California. Most obvious to me was the synergy of the members as we participated in the lecutures, networked with each other and had some fun discussing the nursing profession.

ACNL membership has been essential to me since participating in my first Annual Conference. On a monthly basis, I visit the ACNL website to see what is new in our world of nursing leadership and make a note of the many opportunities that membership provides.

Benefits of ACNL Membership
The benefits of ACNL Membership can be summed up in one word - Synergy.

ACNL is a synergistic group, meaning that the effect of a collection of people is greater than just one person.

My Message
So, whether you are looking to learn about job postings in your field, network in your professional community, gain access to current events in your career area, or just have some fun while meeting new or keeping in touch with colleagues, joining and/or maintaining your ACNL membership is a step in the right direction!
