AMSN Celebrates Its 30th Anniversary
AMSN Celebrates 30 Amazing Years Serving the Global Med-Surg Nursing Community - Join the Celebration!
AMSN would be nothing without our nurses. For our 30th Anniversary, we are focusing on celebrating YOU, our amazing med-surg nursing family.
This year marks 30 years for us as an association - but more than that, it is a celebration of our history, staying true to our mission, realizing our vision, and bringing love and support to the thousands of med-surg nurses who put their trust in us each year. So, while 2021 is about an association achieving a milestone year - our celebration is for you, all year long. Because without you, there is no us.
AMSN was formed to reach the "hidden and silent" heroes of tertiary care facilities – you!
We have already enjoyed lots of fun playing our 30th Anniversary Trivia all summer - and we plan to have more fun in the fall! Congratulations to all those who received care baskets!
So, What's Coming Up In Our 30th Year?
October 1-31 - "Walking In Their Shoes"
This month will honor all of the nurses that have influenced us, as the nurses 30 years ago affected all of us. Nurses will nominate other nurses who impact, inspire, and support them. Nurses are asked to share 250 words about why they appreciate that nurse, honoring what it is like to walk in their shoes. We'll select nurses throughout the month to receive a thoughtful gift basket from us, just for sharing their story. The stories shared will also go into our AMSN 30th Anniversary anthology. To submit your nominee, email 250 words or less about them to MSM@amsn.org.
November 1-30 - Med-Surg Nurses Week - 30th Anniversary Style!
Be prepared to find free webinars each and every week, AMSN/CMSRN swag box giveaways, and more! Details coming soon!
November 10-25 - Holidays & Hashtags for the Anniversary
We're asking our nurses to send 1-2 pictures of what makes them most happy, and we will put them into an amazing collage to be shared on our social media pages. Send them to MSM@amsn.org. Or you can post them on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, but you must use hashtags #amsn30Y #AMSNNurseHappy when you post, so we can find your awesome photo online!
10 lucky submissions will get a surprise AMSN 30th Anniversary sweatshirt from us! Annnnd maybe a little something else. :-)
December 1-31 Play it Again...For Our Anniversary
Love music? We do, too. What song got you through tough times the past year? Send us your favorite song* and artist's name to MSM@amsn.org. We'll add it to our 30th Anniversary Playlist on Spotify, and give you a shout-out on your great musical taste. We'll share the full playlist on the New Year, to celebrate how far we have all come. And how far we're going to go. The playlist will only be made by nurses, for nurses. (*No explicit lyrics, please.)
