AACN publications serve to advance the quality of baccalaureate and graduate nursing education, promote nursing research, and develop academic leaders. AACN therefore reserves the right to unilaterally reject, omit, or cancel any advertisement that is not in the best interests of the objectives and policies of the Association, or that is not in keeping with the generally scholarly and professional nature of AACN publications. The publication of any advertisement by AACN is neither an endorsement of the advertiser nor of the products or services advertised. 

AACN promotes equal employment opportunities as required by law, and accepts only advertisements that are not discriminatory on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, handicap, sexual orientation, veteran status, or any other reason not related to individual merit. 


Syllabus is published bimonthly beginning with the January issue. Syllabus is distributed in the second month of the issue by AACN members, kindred organizations, and individual subscribers. AACN recommends that response deadlines in ads be no earlier than the 15th of the month following the month of publication. See copy deadline dates below for including, changing, or cancelling ads.

Career Center features a comprehensive list available of vacancies in U.S. nursing colleges and universities.

Features include direct payment access, immediate job postings, selection of job posting date, enhanced job search capabilities, and a new look and feel to ads.
