AAACN was invited by Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI), the Nightingale Initiative for Global Health (NIGH), and the Florence Nightingale Museum (FNM) to co-sponsor the 2010 International Year of the Nurse (2010 IYN). AAACN is participating as a "Friend of 2010 IYN" by adding a link to the 2010 IYN Web site to our site and promoting the initiative to our members and colleagues.
2010 IYN represents a year-long series of events to recognize the contributions of nurses globally and to engage nurses in promoting world health, including the UN Millennium Development Goals. This celebration is in conjunction with the Centennial Year of the death of the founder of modern nursing - Florence Nightingale (1820-1910). Learn more at www.2010iynurse.net
