Strive for Five



We're excited to launch our Strive For Five Membership Drive, a great opportunity for you to make a significant impact and be rewarded for your efforts.


What's Strive For Five?

For the next 5 months, March through July, we encourage each AAACN member to recruit five new members. We believe in the power of our community, and together, we can grow even stronger.

  • Start Recruiting: Reach out to colleagues, friends, and anyone interested in ambulatory care nursing.
  • Track Your Progress: Keep count of the new members you bring in – aim for that magic number 5! Be sure your recruits include your name on their application form “Who referred you to AAACN?”
  • Time Frame: Set your timer! Strive for Five goes from March 1 to July 31, 2024. On August 1, we’ll announce the winner. We’ll award a complimentary one-year AAACN membership to the current member that recruits the most new members in the 5 months. All current members that recruit at least 5 members in the 5 months will receive AAACN merchandise!
