Special Interest Groups

Participation in a Special Interest Group (SIG) is one of the benefits of membership in AAACN.

Groups include:

  • 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.
