AACN actively seeks opportunities to partner with businesses and organizations looking to connect with top decision-makers, faculty, and students within the nation's academic nursing community. Resulting partnerships must be consistent with AACN’s core values, mission, and strategic plan and result in a significant benefit to AACN member schools.
Launched in 2016, AACN-TV is an online portal for showcasing innovations in academic nursing. This platform was created through a partnership between AACN and New Media News TV. Videos produced through this partnership may be used to help recruit new students and faculty, highlight nurse-led research efforts, profile faculty members and/or students, spotlight community-based health services, showcase curricular innovations, illustrate pathways into nursing, and in many other ways. To date more than 60 videos have been produced through this partnership, which has been expanded to our practice partners and members of the American Organization for Nursing Leadership.
Nursing schools and practice sites interested in finding out more about AACN-TV, are encouraged to contact site producer Danny Cohen with New Media News TV.

Skyfactor Benchworks, a Macmillian Learning Company, provides research-based program benchmarking and assessments to help schools of nursing identify areas of improvement. AACN has formed a partnership with Skyfactor Benchworks to offer a wide range of assessment tools that provide comprehensive, confidential, comparative data with peer schools, which are based on the AACN Essentials and the National Task Force Criteria for NP programs.
