Why Join AVA?

Because you will be a part of a great community of committed professionals.  AVA is the largest and most active vascular access organization in the world. It is a multidisciplinary organization comprised of nurses, pharmacists, physicians, and vascular access industry representatives, all of whom have all discovered the value of professional excellence, education, and networking opportunities available through AVA membership.

AVA's unique international membership focuses on patient-centered care, safe insertion and maintenance of devices, vascular access service management, and staff and patient education.  Through engagement in AVA-directed efforts, members advocate for patient safety and improved outcomes through identification and implementation of best practices in techniques and complication prevention.  AVA is a vibrant, active organization with a great feeling of camaraderie among its members. We also like to add a dose of fun to go with our education and hard work. You will find this and more through our annual conference, area networks, and committee involvement

We offer two types of membership.
