ASPAN Group Membership Program

The best available resources can help ensure the best patient outcomes. That’s one reason employers should consider providing their nurses in pre- and post-operative patient care with membership to the American Society of PeriAnesthesia Nurses (ASPAN).

ASPAN provides its members with the latest in perianesthesia education, research, and clinical expertise. Facilities, in turn, enjoy having some of the most dedicated, best-educated perianesthesia nurses as employees. We even offer discounts to facilities that purchase 15 or more membership at a time!
