Leadership development has been a cornerstone of AACN’s programs and services since the association’s inception nearly 50 years ago. To ensure that all AACN members have access to enrichment experiences tailored to their needs, AACN has launched AACN LEADS.
Designed to provide a variety of learning opportunities to all individuals along the leadership continuum, from novice faculty to seasoned administrator, AACN LEADS introduces a portfolio of programs for new, early career, and experienced deans, associate deans, program directors, and faculty.
