Membership

Full CAHN memberships are available to nurses in Canada who work with patients with liver disease. For those who do not meet these criteria, we are excited to announce our new Friends of CAHN initiative, which allows non-members access to CAHN’s educational tools and events.

CAHN Membership

CAHN is run by members for members. Education and patient care are our top priorities. To support this, CAHN offers a generous travel reimbursement benefit to ensure easy access to our educational events.  CAHN strives to ensure education is accessible to all members, including those who find travel to be a barrier. In 2020 we introduced our first virtual event, which initiated the creation of our new video educational library. CAHNs membership contains voting rights within the organization.

Interested in becoming a member?
