Advertising Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in advertising in Syllabus, the bimonthly, online newsletter of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN). Space is available in the Opportunities section for advertising position openings, availabilities, and consultant and other services.

Your advertisement will reach deans and faculty at more than 36,000 individuals in 790 baccalaureate and graduate nursing programs throughout the United States, as well as many other members of the nursing education community.


AACN publications serve to advance the quality of baccalaureate and graduate nursing education, promote nursing research, and develop academic leaders. AACN therefore reserves the right to unilaterally reject, omit, or cancel any advertisement that is not in the best interests of the objectives and policies of the Association, or that is not in keeping with the generally scholarly and professional nature of AACN publications. The publication of any advertisement by AACN is neither an endorsement of the advertiser nor of the products or services advertised.

AACN promotes equal employment opportunities as required by law, and accepts only advertisements that are not discriminatory on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, handicap, sexual orientation, veteran status, or any other reason not related to individual merit.


Syllabus is published bimonthly beginning with the January issue. The deadline for including, changing, or cancelling ads is the 5th of the first month of the issue: for example, January 5 for the January/February issue. Syllabus is received in the second month of the issue by AACN members, kindred organizations, and individual subscribers. AACN recommends that response deadlines in ads be no earlier than the 15th of the month following the month of publication.


The classified ad rate is $10 per line for AACN members and $12 per line for nonmembers. There is a 10 line minimum for all ads. The printed ad will accommodate approximately 40 characters and spaces per line.
