Strength in Numbers: A NASN Member-to-Member Campaign
NASN members recognize how NASN’s resources and opportunities benefit career and school health programs. Day to day, they connect with prospective members at work and through professional networks. A word-of-mouth marketing campaign is a great way to promote the growth of an organization. By tapping into your professional networks and encouraging others to engage with NASN, you are strengthening the national and local voice of school nursing and keeping students healthy and academically successful. To show appreciation for referrals to membership, NASN will give referrer a $10 credit for merchandise or toward conference fees for each referral.
