Join as a Student

If you're in school studying for a career in the long-term care field, joining AANAC as a student member is a smart move. We offer information and resources that aren't taught in the classroom and provide members with need-to-know updates so they can be top of their game, everyday.

Enhance your education with an AANAC student membership

AANAC also offers gold-standard certification and education programs. If you're interested in fine-tuning your skills and achieving a certification, consider taking the Resident Assessment Coordinator-Certified (RAC-CT®) certification or the Medicare University (MU) education program. If you're a new graduate and need a starter course, MDS Essentials is a 10-session virtual workshop program that provides a solid foundation to get you started in MDS. 

Be sure to check out our nursing student resources for articles, tools, and information on the long-term care profession.
