Before You Apply

What is it?
AACN’s Continuing Professional Development Scholarships help you continue your professional and personal growth. This opportunity is available to AACN members exclusively.
How does it benefit me?

AACN is offering you an incredible opportunity to learn and enhance your career. If you aren’t yet a member, consider all the other benefits of joining our community of exceptional acute and critical care nurses. Visit the membership page. 

Why should I apply?

It’s the opportunity to realize your dreams of continued growth. Although there are many opportunities to apply for a research grant, very few organizations offer scholarships as a membership benefit.

How do I apply?

You need to develop a personalized learning plan that links a knowledge gap to your requested activity and address several questions, including how the opportunity will help you achieve your learning goals. Please apply three to four months in advance, so we have sufficient time to process your request.

“Thank you AACN for giving me the opportunity to advocate for nursing interests. A true learning experience,” Gabriela Paniagua, RN, PCCN, Mount Sinai Medical Center, New York, on her attendance at the Nurse in Washington Internship, which was supported by an AACN scholarship.
