BONUS Online Collaboration Community
AACN Online Collaboration Community
To more closely engage with our constituents, AACN has created an online Collaboration Community exclusively for faculty and deans of member schools. A BONUS Group and BONUS Group discussion Board have been added for our group to allow us to more easily access information pertinent to our members. This will replace the old BONUS Listserv.
This online forum serves as a social media platform that enables members to share knowledge and best practices through discussion boards, post resources, explore topics of shared concerns, and form strategic alliances. Members of the community also enjoy on-demand access to more than 50 archived webinars on topics ranging from best teaching practices to inter-professional education to executive leadership and many others.
To gain access to the Collaboration Community and all Webinars, please use this temporary login information:
Login ID: aacnnewmember
Upon entering the site for the first time, you will be prompted to create a new, unique ID and password once you have completed the registration process. We suggest using your e-mail address as your login ID. Try to choose a password that you will be able to remember. Please note, when you register for the Community, you must indicate your institution and use an institutional e-mail address that ends in “.edu”. If an e-mail address is used that does not end in “.edu”, you will be contacted by the site administrator. Once you have created your account, you will also be prompted to join any groups you might find relevant (i.e. the BONUS Group). You will want to join these groups in order to see the message boards associated with them.
If you are already a member of the site and wish to join the BONUS group:
1. Click on “My Settings” in the left-hand navigation menu
2. On the “Groups” section on the right-hand side, click select.
3. Click the check mark next to BONUS Group. Click submit.
If you want to create a discussion thread, you will use the BONUS Group discussion Board. Please check out the announcements on the site (left side of the screen on the directory) regarding managing the number of emails you received from the AACN Collaboration Community and the one on Discussion Groups for additional information about how to post and posting etiquette.
