Building Bridges and New Pathways in Doctoral Nursing Education!

We are pleased to announce that AACN’s 2021 Doctoral Education Conference will continue as a virtual event. We look forward to continuing to engineer pathways for the future of doctoral nursing education as we adapt to the shifting events landscape and the needs of our members and their communities. 

Join a dedicated community of over 700 deans, directors, and faculty who teach in doctoral programs, as well as nursing leaders who are primarily responsible for advancing a research agenda. 

This conference addresses both the practice and the research doctorate and provides ample opportunity for the development of teaching, research, and administrative role

This conference explores national trends in doctoral nursing education, strategies to increase enrollment, and ways to increase or maintain rigor in terminal degree programs. Participants benefit from face-to-face interaction with peers, industry leaders, and experts during interactive learning formats. Additionally, abstract presentations in both poster and podium format address the many changes and challenges in doctoral education
