Join Your Colleagues at Fall Regional Meetings

AACN fall regional meetings, which are scheduled throughout the country, offer members and prospective members a chance to network with colleagues and learn more about AACN and its chapters. Although fall regional meetings are hosted by chapters, they are open to members who are not chapter members and to critical care nurses who are interested in AACN. In some regions, chapters sponsor educational programs in conjunction with the meetings. Following is a list of the meetings scheduled to date:
