Teaching Resources

AACN continues to develop tool kits through grant funds, association lead task force, and inter professional projects. The term tool kit is used to describe the competencies, essentials, guides, as well as those items titled as "toolkit".

AACN currently hosts online education modules for a limited content area but starting in the Summer of 2017 these modules will be increased in quantity and quality after an association level review and needs assessment. As a way to remain ever responsive to the needs of our nursing community this portfolio of offering will continue to grow.

National Call to Action for Nurse Faculty Recognition

AACN has joined The DAISY Foundation™ to issue a National Call for Nurse Faculty Recognition to honor academic leaders responsible for preparing the nation's nursing workforce. AACN encourages those wishing to formally recognize nurse educators to consider using The DAISY Award® for Extraordinary Nursing Faculty. This award was created to honor nursing faculty who inspire their students to provide high quality, compassionate care. To date, more than 560 nurse educators have been recognized with this distinguished honor. Learn more.

AACN is committed to celebrating the faculty role and spotlighting the efforts made to recognize nurse educators in our newsletters, on the website, and at our regional meetings and conferences. Please send details about local efforts to showcase nurse faculty to cproulx@aacnnursing.org.
