At its Fall Semiannual Meeting held in Washington, DC last week, the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) recognized nursing school deans, faculty, and practice leaders for their contributions to transforming nursing education.
AACN and the CDC are pleased to announce that a new nurse fellowship is now available through this collaborative effort that focuses on Managing Chronic Conditions in Schools.
With the national movement to the DNP well underway, the AACN Board is seeking to identify best practices related to facilitating programmatic change and delineate barriers that may be addressed through focused advocacy and other means.
AACN is pleased to announce a convening of academic leaders for a National Dialogue on the Future of Nursing Science and the Research-Focused Doctorate on September 19-20, 2013 in Chicago, IL.
AACN's Nominating Committee has issued a Call for Nominations for candidates to fill five Board seats and two vacancies on the Nominating Committee. The committee will choose the slate of candidates at the 2013 Fall Semiannual Meeting based on nominations and the committee's deliberations.
