What is a Professional Association?
Every profession has an organization or association for students and professionals.
Some professions have many professional associations for specialists within a career (such as one for Neonatal Nursing). Professional associations offer career information, training, conferences and other resources for members. Association or organization websites can be valuable sources of information for the career researcher.
Search through Google using the name of your career and the words "professional" and "association."
- For example: licensed practical nursing professional association
- Most professional organization web-sites end in ".org" rather than ".com".
