2021 Academic Nursing Leadership Conference

Where AACN Members Connect with Noted Thought Leaders and Shape the Future of Nursing Education!

This past year we have been challenged, and we all have missed being together. Being apart reminded us of the vital human connections that enrich our personal and professional lives. The 2021 Academic Nursing Leadership Conference (ANLC) is the time for all of us to come back to refocus and re-establish our relationships, our community, and the health care of tomorrow.

Join us for this premier event, designed specifically for academic nursing leaders like you, to reconnect and re-energize with fellow colleagues and to impact nursing education and the future of nursing. The conference program features thought-provoking views and trendsetting ideas, award-winning speakers, and educational content carefully selected to help strengthen your role as an academic nursing leader.

Who Can Attend:
ANLC is a member-only event for the primary Dean/Director of AACN member schools of nursing and their Assistant/Associate Deans/Directors.

How to Attend:
If you are ready to meet again in-person, please join us in October in Washington, DC at the JW Marriott Hotel. If you prefer to join virtually and explore what a hybrid event looks like from that side, we welcome you to participate in that way.

The safety of attendees and staff is our top priority – we will follow all relevant protocols and CDC guidelines and will work closely with the JW Marriott to promote the recommended practices at the time of the event.

Conference Venue:
