AAACN Supports the Nursing Community

AAACN takes its role as a leader in the nursing and health care community very seriously. AAACN recently became involved in the following activities:

  • Signed on to FY 2011 Title VIII Nursing Community Letter requesting $267.3 million for Title VIII programs.
  • Signed on to letter of concern regarding changing title of "Chief Nurse Officer" of the US Public Health Service to the "National Nurse."
  • Endorsed the Americans for Nursing Shortage Relief (ANSR) consensus document that outlines programs and evidence-based, cost-effective best practices that hold the most promise to adequately address and mitigate the complex factors contributing to the current and expected nurse and nursing faculty shortages.
