“This was an excellent conference. The presenters were excellent, the program was well planned, and I was able to take away a number of ideas and concepts for implementation. We laughed and cried - evoking a range of emotions.”

“As a new Dean, it was helpful to hear other challenges and suggestions. It was also helpful to network with other new Deans.”

“This was my first time attending and I thoroughly enjoyed the conference. I was able to bring so much information home to share with nursing colleagues”

“This was one of the best AACN Fall conferences that I have attended. Thank you for the diverse topics, excellent speakers and opportunity to dialogue during the sessions.”
