Connect with Academic Nursing Leaders ● Raise Brand Awareness ● Shape the Future of Nursing

For the past 50 years, the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) has been the national voice of academic nursing education. AACN has earned the reputation of being one of the most thought-provoking and insightful organizations in our industry. Each year, we bring together the top leaders from nursing schools nationwide to share experiences and success stories, to connect with noted thought leaders, and to shape the future of nursing.

We invite you to join us during these upcoming opportunities.
