Gifts to AACN
Make a Gift to Support Excellence in Nursing
Members of our AACN community are genuinely committed to supporting acute and critical care nurses in making their optimal contribution toward a healthcare system driven by the needs of patients and their families. One way they do this is by supporting AACN with a gift. Read more about making a gift.
Gifts to AACN help members to take another step toward excellence through professional development and lifelong learning. They also fund learning opportunities beyond traditional academic nursing education and help support nurses to pursue specialized development through programs focused on health policy and advocacy, evidence-based practice and nurse leadership.
Consider making a gift to an AACN fund that supports excellence in nursing:
- Evidence-Based Research Fund — Supports grants designed to ensure a vital source of clinically relevant research for creating the evidence-based resources that influence high acuity critical care nursing practice.
- Scholarship Endowment Fund — Provides opportunities for high acuity and critical care nurses to hone knowledge and skills in areas such as communication, collaboration, leadership and governance. Supports nurses who pursue specialized development through programs focused on health policy and advocacy, evidence-based practice, nurse leadership and academic preparation for roles that increase their influence.
- Sharon Connor Fund for Leadership Development — Supports the Excellence in Chapter Leadership Development award and provides a keynote speaker at the annual Chapter Leadership Development Workshop. Provides for leadership development to advance the AACN mission. Learn more about Sharon Connor.
