The Air & Surface Transport Nurses Association is searching for more military members! The organization is dedicated to progressing the science of transporting patients to a higher level of care. This is a significant area in which the military has a great history in pioneering advancement.
Unfortunately, in looking at current numbers, we represent just a small slice of the membership pie. This screams of opportunity not only in being part of an incredible organization, but the chance to formally meld the worlds of military and civilian medical transport.
Although the Military Transport Nursing website, which is part of the ASTNA is sparse, there is some great basic information about the military role in medical transport. If you have anything you would like to see on it, send me an email or Twitter me.
I am currently in my fifth year of membership, and am speaking at this year’s AMTC conference . Although I am not currently active on any boards or committees, I believe that membership and or participation is a great way to exercise your professionalism. This goes for all of you who have emailed me interested in this very specialized field as well!!! You don’t have to be a flight nurse or a ground transport nurse to immerse yourself in the organization!
Have any questions? Feel free to send me an email!
