AAACN’s SIG are a significant membership benefit, connecting you with an active community of AAACN members who share your passion for specific areas within ambulatory care nursing. The CCTM, Patient/Staff Education, Pediatrics, Telehealth, and VA SIGs are currently seeking Chair-Elects for the 2020-2021 term. Find out about it. (Member login required)

Special Interest Groups

Participation in Special Interest Groups (SIGs) is one of the benefits of AAACN membership.

Sign up for your first SIG, or join another. It's easy and fast! AAACN members can join one or more of the following SIGs:

  • CCTM - promote communication and collaboration between AAACN members with specific interest related to CCTM tools and resources.
  • Leadership - provides a forum to discuss leadership/management issues and works to increase the effectiveness and credibility of nurses as leaders in ambulatory care.
  • Patient/Staff Education - informs/educates members of AAACN on patient and staff education issues.
  • Pediatrics - focuses on education and/or networking for members caring for pediatric patients.
  • Telehealth Nursing Practice - focuses on the improvement of telehealth clinical practice and the promotion of the AAACN Scope and Standards of Practice for Professional Telehealth Nursing through networking, education, and research.
  • Tri-Service Military - collaborates on ambulatory care issues that touch nursing across the military, provides opportunities to develop and share best practices/processes unique to the military, and network on staff and patient education.
  • Veterans Affairs - provides a forum for VA ambulatory care nurses to discuss problems; share solutions and creative programs; and keep in touch across the country
