Education

IntNSA serves as a forum for all nurses who are interested in the prevention, intervention and treatment of addictions to enhance knowledge, advance skills, continue education and be a resource to nurses across all practice settings. As always, attendees to our Annual Educational Conference are afforded a number of educational presentations, a forum for the exchange of ideas and the occasion of social networking to increase collegial relationships.


Networking

With other behavioral health care professionals who focus on addictions to enhance your professional development and apply in your practice what you learn from others through face-to-face workshops and meetings, and through volunteer participation on IntNSA committees. Can’t find what you’re looking for in these venues? IntNSA’s website hosts a searchable membership directory through which you can search for colleagues by location, institution name and a variety of other factors.


Scientific Information

Delivered to you through IntNSA’s publications and web site. The indexed scientific journal, Journal of Addictions Nursing (JAN,) a journal for the Prevention and Management of Addictions, keeps members current on practice-related issues which boost their own performance. Articles featuring scientific breakthroughs, controversial therapies, and ethical issues are some of the topics featured in each issue. The News Wave newsletter provides brief, informative articles on IntNSA’s initiatives underway on our members’ behalf and reports events that affect your practice.


Research

Provides the opportunity to study questions and present results encountered in every-day practice. Learn from colleagues through abstracts, case studies and research grant presentations, which IntNSA and the Foundation for Addictions Nursing (FAN) support.


Washington Representation

Effectively presenting ways the nation can improve patient care, while reducing the frustrations and challenges our members face in daily practice. Addictions nurses influence legislation and positively impact their practice when they participate in IntNSA’s grass roots efforts. Stay informed through the web site and broadcast e-mails when IntNSA weighs in on proposed legislation, presents expert testimony before congressional committees, or suggests new legislation when meeting with health care staffers.
