Fall Executive Development Series

Offered twice a year, this program is open to aspiring leaders, associate deans, and current chief academic nursing officers in the fall (prior to the Baccalaureate Education Conference), and AACN member deans and directors in the spring (prior to the Deans Annual Meeting). Whether it is providing approaches to building key connections, mastering a variety of communication techniques, or facilitating the advancement of those that report to you, participants consistently report that the presentations provide recommendations and strategies that are relevant, timely, and transferable.
This event is offered as a 1.5 day informative program prior to the Baccalaureate Education Conference.
