Does NHS matter?

At my school, there are a bunch of kids who are in NHS, and they are always praised for their service. When I look at the members, there are some really smart kids in there, but most of them are average students. So my question is, does NHS matter?

When I first got the letter, I was excited. I asked around and everyone else I was in school with also got the letter. I don’t know anyone who actually did it because I heard it’s just some extra resources and it wasn’t worth it. Did others around you also get invited to join? Maybe it’s something different? Regardless, if they have a website, I’d check it out. Or give them a call to see what they offer! I hope you can update us with whatever you decide! Good luck regardless!


Thanks for your reply! I decided not to join because when I asked this question, I was already a junior, so it was too late for me to join. Sohaib A.

No problem. I’m sure you didn’t miss anything. It wasn’t meant to be & other opportunities will arise! Shalissa Coutoulakis, MSW

I think any honor society is great to put on your resume because generally, it shows some kind of academic achievement. However, it is like most clubs and organizations where you need to be involved with the organization with service projects or leadership roles in order for you to be able to really elaborate on it on your resume. Yes, I think it can be a great opportunity, but if you are not involved with the organization, you could find something else that peaks your interest that you can be involved in.

Many of the most talented classmates I had in medical school were not members; don't let institutional praise be the basis for your confidence nor the reason to despair

It depends on what your looking for it to do. If your looking to help with a college application, yes I think it would make a difference. Certainly wouldn't hurt that's for sure.

If its for on a resume for a position it might be helpful in your early career but less so as you gain more relevant skills and experience.
