Stand Tall is the AACN president's theme for 2010-2011. The theme was unveiled at the NTI in Washington, D.C., on May 19, 2010.
Stand Tall means to recognize the unique and indispensable role nurses play. Recognize it, understand it, articulate it, own it, accept responsibility for it, and celebrate it.
Stand Tall — be proud of what you do.
Stand Tall — speak up.
Stand Tall — together we can do more.
Stand Tall — own the outcomes of your work.
Stand Tall — enjoy what you do.
— Kristine Peterson, AACN President 2010-2011
