As part of our anniversary celebration, AACN is delighted to announce that we are offering a new opportunity for you to raise your school’s profile through our partnership with New Media News TV, the engine behind AACN-TV. We are planning to showcase the latest videos produced for AACN-TV in a special screening room at our 50th anniversary celebration in October 2019. Meeting attendees will be invited to drop in, enjoy some popcorn, and see the latest innovations underway at our nation’s nursing schools.
About AACN-TV: Through this collaboration, AACN offers member schools access to high-quality video services at a discounted rate to facilitate your ability to showcase your programs to prospective students, alumni, foundation leaders, legislators, and other stakeholders. Videos produced through this partnership will give your programs national exposure and may be used to help recruit new students and faculty, engage with potential donors, feature nurse-led research efforts, profile faculty members and/or students, spotlight community-based health services, illustrate curricular innovations, and more unique elements. We also encourage schools to work with their practice partners to produce joint videos about your collaborative work and the impact this is having on health care and higher education.
As always, schools commissioning video segments will own the content and may use it as promotional material for donor and alumni engagement and in many other ways. In addition to presenting the videos on, we have adapted our online member school directory to highlight the videos, which are also shown at AACN's Spring and Fall meetings and featured on the AACN App. I encourage those interested to review the network-quality videos that have been produced by New Media News TV for more than 60 nursing schools at and also see what some of your dean colleagues have to say in the testimonial section of the website.
New Packages Available! AACN-TV is now offering members additional video segments, in addition to the standard 3-minute video, at no additional cost. Those purchasing a 50th anniversary package will also receive a one-minute news release for the local media and three 15-second clips that can be easily disseminated via social media to drive audiences to view the films. Only a limited number of packages will be available and offered on a first-come first-served basis in order to ensure that these videos are completed in time for the screening at AACN’s October meeting.
Schools interested in pursuing this opportunity should contact project director Danny Cohen to find out more about getting started. Danny will also be available at AACN's Deans Annual Meeting in Washington, DC in March for those looking to discuss AACN-TV in person. For more information about this exciting partnership, please contact Chief Communications Officer Robert Rosseter.
