Donations to AACN support excellence in nursing. They help AACN members improve their practice through professional development and lifelong learning. They fund learning opportunities in and beyond traditional academic nursing education and help members pursue specialized development through programs focused on health policy/advocacy, evidence-based practice, nurse leadership and more.
