2020 National Faculty Meeting Underway – November 15 through December 30

AACN is asking member schools to schedule a second National Faculty Meeting between November 15 and December 30, 2020 to share the current draft of the Essentials with faculty and practice partners and collect any input.  AACN has put together several tools and resources for schools to facilitate a meaningful dialogue. These resources include an overview video, link to the latest draft Essentials, a summary of feedback from a recent input session at the Academic Nursing Leadership Conference, proposed discussion questions, and a link to provide feedback from your institution.
