Announcing Regional Meetings on AACN's Re-Envisioning of the Essentials

Published January 14, 2020

 As part of our work to build consensus around the new AACN Essentials, AACN will host four regional meetings to collect feedback from our members and stakeholders. At these events, the Essentials Task Force will share key elements of the Essentials, which are used to shape the development of undergraduate and graduate nursing programs, including domains, domain descriptors, competencies, and sub-competencies. Attendees will be able to review and provide input on the materials presented, which will shape future iterations of the Essentials as the re-envisioning process moves forward. We encourage deans, faculty, and students from member schools to attend the regional meetings along with their practice partners. In addition, national nursing organization representatives are welcome to attend. 

Important Note: The first two regional meetings will focus on the Essentials related to Entry into Professional Nursing Practice; the last two meetings will focus on Advanced Professional Nursing Practice.
