ARN President’s Message—October 2020

ARN Is Your Voice Around the World 

Since its founding in 1976, the Association of Rehabilitation Nurses (ARN) remains the only nursing specialty organization for rehabilitation registered nurses recognized by the American Nurses Association. I am so proud to be your 2020-2021 President! 

ARN members practice a rehabilitation nursing philosophy of care
Having been an ARN member since 1977, I can attest that our association truly believes that rehabilitation nursing is a philosophy of care, not a work setting or a phase of treatment. We base our practice on rehabilitative and restorative principles by:

  • managing complex medical issues
  • collaborating with other specialists
  • providing ongoing patient/caregiver education
  • setting goals for maximum independence
  • establishing plans of care to maintain optimal wellness.

The vision of ARN is "to transform health care by integrating rehabilitation nursing concepts into care for all people."
