Benefits of Membership

Pennsylvania Developmental Disabilities Nurses Network (PADDNN) is a local network of the national Developmental Disabilities Nurses Association (DDNA). We are a professional organization for nurses specializing in the field of intellectual and developmental disabilities (I-DD) nursing.

Membership in PADDNN is open to licensed nurses, student nurses, retired nurses, and any other professional who has interest in the care and support of individuals with I-DD.

PADDNN is dedicated to supporting and addressing the needs of I-DD nurses in Pennsylvania. It is our hope to keep you informed of what is new and exciting in the challenging world of I-DD nursing as well as in the Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) policies affecting I-DD nursing across the state.

PADDNN organizes virtual member meetings via Zoom each March, June, and August. The meetings include educational presentations on a variety of topics and how they relate to I-DD nursing. Continuing education hours for nurses are offered at each of our meetings. PADDNN member meetings also offer a great place to network with other professionals in the field, share expertise and experience. These meetings are free of charge (including continuing education hours) for any current PADDNN member to attend. A non-member can attend a meeting and receive the continuing education hours for a $20 fee.

PADDNN organizes an annual conference each October. This offers a full day of educational presentations, continuing education hours for nurses, and includes lunch. This is a great networking opportunity as well. PADDNN members can attend the conference for a discounted fee.

PADDNN will post information regarding upcoming events as they are scheduled. Please keep an eye out for events that may interest you.

Your membership and support are greatly appreciated for without it, there would be no PADDNN. We look forward to continued growth and development and are pleased to announce that our membership continues to be strong.
