Elevating Leaders in Academic Nursing: Meet the 2023-2024 ELAN Fellows

We're thrilled to announce this year's Elevating Leaders in Academic Nursing (ELAN) fifth cohort, who recently gathered for an intensive five-day program in Itasca, Illinois. Comprising accomplished faculty members aspiring to lead the nursing academic units at their respective institutions, these individuals have embarked on a transformative journey that promises to shape their careers and the future of nursing education.

During the program, participants cultivated meaningful connections, delved deep into their ambitions and challenges, and explored their distinctive leadership styles. This marks just the beginning of a year filled with self-discovery, continuous growth, and purposeful goal-setting. The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) takes immense pride in these outstanding leaders and warmly welcomes them into the ELAN fellows community. Together, they are at the forefront of change, driving excellence in academic nursing. Join us in extending our heartfelt congratulations to the ELAN Fellows on their successful completion of the program!
