Annual Conference

Important Conference Update: AAACN Conference Rescheduled.

On March 13, 2020, after closely monitoring the evolving situation with the Coronavirus COVID-19, the AAACN Board of Directors approved rescheduling the 2020 Annual Conference, which was originally scheduled for April 15-18, 2020. The Board made this decision after careful and thoughtful consideration of many factors, including the increasing number of cases of COVID-19, its impact on communities around the country and the world, the need for our nurses to be in their communities caring for patients, and the health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors, speakers, staff, and guests. An incredible amount of work has gone into planning this year’s educational program and all of our speakers have put immense time and energy into their presentations. AAACN sincerely thanks you for your patience as we work through this unprecedented situation.

The 2020 AAACN Annual Conference is rescheduled for Wednesday, July 29 – Saturday, August 1, 2020, at the Hilton Chicago.
