THE Meeting Place for Chief Academic Nursing Officers!
AACN’s Deans Annual Meeting provides Deans/Directors from member schools a unique platform to meet with peers and noted thought leaders and discover the latest data, innovations, and strategies on issues of interest in the policy, leadership, higher education, and workforce arenas. In an intimate setting, our deans and directors are given the opportunity to network and collaborate, while also strategizing and preparing to impact nursing education and the future of nursing.
Energizing and interactive learning formats provide a rich learning environment that promotes solution sharing. Speakers and content experts are carefully selected to present thought-provoking views and trendsetting ideas to help strengthen the roles of academic nursing leaders.

Your well-being is AACN’s No. 1 priority!
AACN has revised its policies for the health and safety of in-person conference attendance. All meeting attendees, speakers, partners, and AACN staff are required to show verification of full COVID-19 vaccination or proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 48 hours of travel in order to obtain access to event spaces. Unvaccinated individuals or those unable to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test will not be permitted to attend. AACN will be utilizing a Digital Verification Process through Health Pass by CLEAR, which provides a secure, digital verification of your vaccination status or negative test results via the free CLEAR mobile app. AACN will provide detailed instructions to all in-person attendees approximately 10 days prior to the conference start date.
AACN will continue to monitor any new developments and evaluate what is needed to ensure you are comfortable and we meet safely. We will keep all participants updated as we get closer to the event.
Washington DC has no mask mandate; therefore, wearing masks is currently optional.
