ACNA is an affiliate member of the American Nurses Association, working to establish Cannabis Nursing as an official specialty practice. ACNA intends to provide extensive education and oversee the cannabis nurse credentialing process. This means rather than being certified in cannabis (as most programs provide), cannabis nurses will take an exam and add credentials to their signature! 

Become a member of the American Cannabis Nurses Association and join us as we learn about and advance this emerging and exciting specialty!
