Continuing Professional Development Scholarships
The American Association of Critical-Care Nurses scholarship program has expanded to help members enrich their careers and acquire knowledge and skills beyond traditional academic nursing education. A limited number of scholarships for specific academic courses will continue to be awarded.
Applicants must assess gaps in their knowledge and skills, identify and evaluate learning opportunities and develop a plan to show how an AACN scholarship will help them achieve their professional learning goals. In developing your learning plan, be as specific as possible when you are linking learning activities to knowledge gaps.
Financial support will not be given for clinical learning, such as attending the National Teaching Institute & Critical Care Exposition or other AACN-sponsored programs, for preparing for clinical certification or for professional association dues. Completed activities are not eligible for funding. Support for travel and travel-related expenses will be limited to a maximum of $750 when attending an approved learning activity for which travel is required. Active membership status in AACN is required for the duration of the learning activity.
Eligibility requires current active (RN status) membership in AACN.
