New! Offer for Society for Vascular Nursing Members

SVN Active members will now receive an Affiliate membership with the Society for Vascular Surgery. You can enjoy all the benefits of two memberships for the price of one! SVN provides its members with quality educational opportunities, collaborative relationships that foster clinical experience, and promotes research and evidence-based practices. SVN members represent a wide scope of nursing and advanced practice nursing experience. Membership in SVN has its benefits-including discounts on products and meetings, a subscription to the Journal of Vascular Nursing, and more! With your included SVS Affiliate membership you will also have access to; SVSConnect, our online discussion forum with an exclusive community just for SVN members, discounts off meetings and educational products like the Journal of Vascular Surgery, networking opportunities, and more.

SVN applications are approved on a rolling basis and can be submitted online. Once you have been approved and paid your SVN dues, your dual membership with the SVS will become active and you will have all the benefits of SVN and SVS Membership.

We look forward to welcoming you to the SVN and the SVS. Please reach out to Moe Malek at mmalek@vascularsociety.org with any questions regarding SVN membership and the new dual benefits.

Exclusive Offer for Physician Assistants

As an added-value benefit for PAs the SVS has approved the formation of an SVS PA Section. The SVS PA Section is a “professional home” for PAs working in vascular care settings. The SVS PA Section will be working to serve the vascular PA community by providing PA-specific education at the Vascular Annual Meeting, networking and peer mentoring opportunities, and leadership development through SVS committee engagement.

By completing the Affiliate application, validating that you meet the membership criteria, and paying your Affiliate membership dues, you will be automatically enrolled as a member of the SVS PA Section. After paying your Affiliate membership dues, there are no additional fees to join the PA Section.
