Fellows of the Association of Rehabilitation Nurses


The ARN Fellow Designation (FARN) is the most distinguished level of membership, as well as a public hallmark of professional esteem.

Nurses who have demonstrated outstanding leadership in rehabilitation nursing and have provided notable contributions, service, and commitment to the specialty and the Association can apply to be a Fellow of ARN.

Areas considered for the distinction include participation and leadership in ARN, consultation, research, education, practice, administration, advocacy, and public service. 

Applications for the inaugural class of FARN closed on April 30, 2019. Watch for a new application submission process to open in 2020.
