Mailing List Rental

OVERVIEW: AACN may, in its sole discretion, license to both members and non-members for one-time use a copy of our member and non-member school mail/email lists under the terms and conditions below.  AACN reserves the right to refuse any order for any reason.  In particular, AACN will not license the use of its lists to any commercial entity that intends to mail any materials containing any AACN trademarks or any materials that state or imply that AACN endorses any commercial entity’s goods or services. 

Note: AACN offered an electronic list rental distribution option during the COVID-19 pandemic in response to member needs during this challenging time. The electronic distribution option will be discontinued as of August 31, 2021, and we will continue to rent mailing labels per our usual process.

Final electronic list rental orders must be placed no later than 5:00 pm (ET) on Tuesday, August 31.

Steps to Order a Mail/Email List

  1. To place an order, you must login and visit the AACN's online store. When you order you will be able to choose between the digital email list and the printed list of mailing labels.
    1. Phone orders are not accepted. Once your order has been reviewed and approved by AACN, ALL sales are final; NO returns are permitted.
  2. You must send a sample of the material you wish to distribute to after placing your order on the website.
    1. Included with your sample, please specify if you ordered a printed list of mailing labels or a digital list of email contacts. Please include your invoice number with your sample.  Please note: both of these lists are for one-time use, meaning you will receive one set of mailing labels, or AACN will distribute your publication/announcement to our contact lists on your behalf.
    2. If you purchased the digital list, you will be given a form to give more details about what you are intending to mail. This includes any designed elements, attachments, copy, etc. This information will be reviewed by AACN's Associate Director of Marketing, and she will be in touch confirming your message. 
    3.  After your submitted sample has been reviewed and approved by AACN, you may not modify the sample thereafter for any reason without the prior written consent of AACN.
    4.  Please allow approximately seven to fourteen working days for delivery if mailing labels are ordered, and approximately seven to fourteen days for email collateral to be sent after samples are approved.

AACN makes two mailing lists available in a one-up, pressure-sensitive label format for one-time use only. AACN does not offer lists electronically, (i.e. word or excel). Labels are sorted by zip code, unless you specify otherwise. Each label is addressed to the dean at the school of nursing.
