Important Conference Update

Doctoral Education Conference Transitions to Virtual Event Only

January 6, 2022

Given the current surge in COVID-19 cases caused by the highly-contagious Omicron variant, AACN has made the difficult decision to transition the Doctoral Education Conference to a fully virtual event. The safety of our members is our top priority, and we believe this action is needed to protect the health of the academic nursing community.
