2023 BONUS Annual Meeting

A Networking and Learning Opportunity for Those Who Work in the Administrative and Financial Management of Schools of Nursing.

AACN’s Business Officers of Nursing Schools (BONUS) Annual Meeting offers a unique opportunity to stay informed about issues of importance to the operational management of nursing schools including technology, business, and financial and administrative management as well as trends in academic nursing, and opportunities for leadership and team building. Take advantage of this opportunity to learn from thought leaders and peers, meet face-to-face with BONUS network members, and take away innovative strategies to help you succeed in your role back home.

Health & Safety

Last updated December 20, 2022

AACN has revised its policies for entry to in-person conferences: verification of vaccination or negative COVID-19 test will no longer be required. It is however recommended that attendees have received the COVID-19 vaccination and take an antigen test before traveling to the event. AACN strives to provide a safe and healthy environment for all meeting participants. By attending an in-person AACN event, all participants must agree to comply with preventative health and safety measures.

The health and safety measures for AACN in-person events are subject to change.
