The AMERSA Special Interest Group for Nurses (known as AMERSA Nurses) is a vibrant alliance of nurses who come together each year at the AMERSA Conference. Our overarching goal is to represent nursing in this collaborative, interdisciplinary organization. We share issues that are nursing centric and represent opportunities for the organization as a whole. In general, we work together to provide mentoring and guidance for nurses whose interest is in substance abuse research—both for the novice and experienced researchers. After the conference, we continue to keep in touch as necessary via email.
The networking opportunities among the AMERSA nurses are great for those entering the field and those who have more experience. We welcome new members. To join AMERSA Nurses, please contact Doreen Baeder, Executive Director of AMERSA
