AACN has revised its policies for entry to in-person conferences: verification of vaccination or negative COVID-19 test will no longer be required. It is however recommended that attendees have received the COVID-19 vaccination and take an antigen test before traveling to the event. AACN strives to provide a safe and healthy environment for all meeting participants. By attending an in-person AACN event, all participants must agree to comply with preventative health and safety measures.

The health and safety measures for AACN in-person events are subject to change.
