Health Policy

An AACN Advocacy Initiative

AACN has prioritized three major advocacy initiatives: healthy work environments, palliative and end-of-life care, and staffing and workforce development. In addition to our focused work in acute and critical care, we work with other organizations in coalition, lending our voice to advance these priorities. By participating in task forces, policy conferences and development of national standards and documents, AACN is working toward our vision of "a healthcare system where acute and critical care nurses can make their optimal contribution."

Through our Legislative Action Center, we provide information regarding issues that affect the nursing profession, practice of acute and critical care nursing, and the patients and families we care for.
