AACN Membership Types and Rates

We haven’t raised membership dues for more than a decade, partly because of the loyal support of our longtime, dedicated members. Join our professional family and you’ll enjoy the value-added benefits of membership.

We tailored our dues structure to accommodate a range of membership types:


Active Membership – $78 Annually

Any registered nurse licensed in the United States who is interested in critical care nursing and is in good standing with the licensing agency of his/her state or territory is eligible for active membership. Nurses employed in research, administration, teaching, medical-surgical, telemetry or progressive care units, home health or any healthcare agency are also eligible.

Affiliate Membership – $78 Annually

Any LVN or LPN, non-nurse professional or student in these areas is eligible, as is any healthcare consumer or member of the corporate or political community.

Affiliate members may not vote, hold office or serve on committees at either the national or chapter level.
