Theme: Leveraging CNLs in a Time of Change

Submission due date DEADLINE EXTENDED: December 13, 2020 by 11:59 p.m. EST

The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) invites faculty, nursing administrators, practicing CNLs and students to submit abstracts that showcase initiatives and innovations in either CNL education or practice. Of particular interest are abstracts that reflect innovation and highlight:

  • CNL practice in a time of crisis and change

  • How the CNL has impacted care during the pandemic
  • How have CNLs addressed wellness and resilience for themselves, patients and those they lead
  • Using the CNL skillset across the continuum of care
  • Impact and value of the CNL role in achieving the Quadruple Aim: improved cost, quality, and service outcomes as well as healthcare provider work life
  • Making the business case for the CNL
  • Innovative CNL curriculum models that highlight emerging trends in healthcare and nursing education (e.g. implementation of the 2017 Recommended CNL Practice Experiences, transition into practice models for all CNL graduates but particularly the Model C graduates)
