Given the current surge in COVID-19 cases caused by the highly-contagious Omicron variant, AACN has made the difficult decision to transition the Doctoral Education Conference to a fully virtual event. The safety of our members is our top priority, and we believe this action is needed to protect the health of the academic nursing community. Thank you for your patience and continued support during these unpredictable times.

Nursing Science and Practice: Creating Equity through Doctoral Education

With a strong focus on advancing inclusive excellence, the Doctoral Education Conference will provide a deeper dive into the areas of nursing doctoral education that create tension points and opportunities for change. Conference sessions will offer practical solutions that all program types may implement to foster equity in academia, health care delivery, and local communities. Topics will include creating capacity through the recruitment and retention of diverse research and practice scholars who will collaborate to discover, implement, and translate research.
