Board of Directors

AACN is governed by an 11-member Board of Directors, each of whom represents a member institution. The Association convenes various committees including the Finance, Government Affairs, Membership, Programs, and Nominating Committees; maintains task forces and advisory groups as needed to focus on topics of critical concern (i.e. diversity and inclusion, academic-practice partnerships); and sponsors seven leadership networks for faculty and staff at schools of nursing.
