National Association of Orthopedic Nurses

The National Association of Orthopedic Nurses (NAON) is a nonprofit, volunteer-run organization that exists to enhance the lives and careers of orthopedic nurses. Formed in 1980, NAON was designed to promote the highest standards of nursing practice by educating its practitioners, promoting research and encouraging effective communication between orthopedic nurses and other groups with similar interests. NAON membership consists of more than 6,000 RNs, LPNs, LVNs, student nurses and associate members from across the country and around the world who share an interest in musculoskeletal healthcare. Norwich is pleased to offer National Association of Orthopedic Nurses employees and their families a 10% tuition discount and waived application fee for our master's degree programs.
