2023 Deans Annual Meeting

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.

Who Can Attend

The Deans Annual Meeting is a member-only event exclusive to the Dean/Director of AACN member schools of nursing.

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.
