AACN is pleased to announce the third class of nursing deans who have successfully completed the AACN-Wharton Executive Leadership Program. Launched in 2012 in collaboration with the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, this world-class enrichment experience is designed exclusively for top academic leaders in schools of nursing. This ground-breaking program, which now includes 87 graduates from schools nationwide, is generously sponsored in part by the Jonas Center for Nursing and Veterans Healthcare.
The Arnold P. Gold Foundation (APGF) and AACN announced that 100 schools of nursing were selected to receive funding support to pilot White Coat Ceremonies, which are designed to instill a commitment to providing compassionate care among future health professionals. Funded by APGF Trustee Elaine Adler and her husband Mike, Co-Founders of the Adler Aphasia Center, this ground-breaking program was developed to promote humanistic, patient-centered care among incoming nursing students this fall.
AACN's 2013-2014 data reports on enrollments and graduations, salaries of deans, and salaries of faculty in baccalaureate and graduate schools of nursing are now available for purchase.
AACN is pleased to announce that registration is now open for the only comprehensive online review course that reflects the content outline of the CNL Certification Exam. Developed by practicing CNLs and academicians, the course will be offered in 12 modules and may be used by individuals preparing for CNL certification or by other healthcare professionals seeking contact hours.
In August 2013, AACN conducted its third online survey of nursing schools offering baccalaureate and graduate programs in the U.S. to better assess the experience of new graduates in finding employment during these tough economic times.
