34th Annual AAACN Conference a Success!

The 584 nurses who attended the Philadelphia conference, March 26-30, 2009, learned a wealth of information, networked with colleagues, participated in our first Town Hall, enjoyed a somewhat rainy city of Brotherly Love, took a walking tour of the city, and toured the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. 60 nurses took the Ambulatory Care Nursing Certification exam Sunday afternoon before leaving to return home. Our first "green" conference was a success. Attendees liked the eco-friendly tote bag they received along with the smaller syllabus.


What Are You Doing to "Go Green?"

After working on our first "green" conference and having responsibility for implementing some of AAACN's new "green" initiatives, I have become even more aware of all of the ways I may be polluting the planet. Because of our efforts to print as little as possible for the conference and other initiatives we have implemented recently (sending renewal notices via e-mail, having members print membership cards online), I have been paying more attention to everything I discard, how much water and electricity I waste, and how many e-mails I print for which I don't need a paper copy!


Getting Certified is Easier than Ever!

As of April 1, the American Nurses Credentialing Center Ambulatory Care Nursing Certification Exam converted to a computer-based exam that can be taken at Prometric Testing Centers across the country. Now you can study and make an appointment to take the exam at your convenience, throughout the year.
