Two Important Goals in 2018

ATHNA is undertaking this one time, unique membership drive to support two important goals in 2018. Your membership is vital, so we can achieve:

  • ANA recognition for the specialty of travel health nursing in 2018
  • Low cost U.S. certification for travel health nursing

While you help ATHNA achieve these goals, your Free membership entitles you to all ATHNA Benefits, so please Join or Renew Today.

  • Courses & Conferences - our most popular feature-a calendar of current CE programs and courses
  • TravelBytes - our monthly blog on travel health topics written by experts
  • TravelByte CE - a quarterly blog that offers free CE credit
  • Annual NED - a unique, free CE day for updates offered at multiple U.S sites
  • Travel Health Nurses Are Asking - Q & A that answers member questions monthly
  • Career Center - members can seek and post new positions
  • Plus Standards and protocols for travel health - a set of the official U.S. Travel Health Nursing Scope & Standards, and more..
Since March, ATHNA has undertaken an historic campaign to build membership and bring together North American travel health nurses. While our initial goal was to add 500 members, we are now just 38 short of 1000! If you are reading this and have any colleagues who might enjoy free membership through March 2019 please invite them to register online today. It is quick and easy and it is FREE.

There are many special benefits. After Labor Day, we plan to offer online educational programs that will provide 3 CE credits-again free- to our members. And if a nurse is currently studying for the September ISTM exam, we have a section under Membership Benefits that highlights recommendations for preparing for this test- written by US nurses who passed the test and hold the CTH credential.

Please pass along the word and help us exceed 1000 members. RNs, LPNs, NPs, CNSs and nursing students are all welcome!

30th McGill Tropical Medicine Course: 25 Clinical Pearls for Our Members

Last month, three ATHNA members attended the 30th McGill Tropical Medicine Course. This is an excellent three day meeting held annually in the beautiful Canadian city of Montreal. (Great speakers, nice venue, and delicious luncheons and breaks.) Our membership in ATHNA connected us, so we were able to share accommodations and enjoy "after hours" together in Old Montreal. Collectively Margaret Curry, Julie Richards and I share a rather long string of "clinical pearls" from that meeting with all of you...
