AACN Update

As a community of acute and critical care nurses, we are connected through our lived experiences, our commitment to patients and their families and our advocacy for a different and better future for health care. We are nurses changing the narrative. Our aspirations are as monumental as our commitment to taking them on boldly, because we are committed to bring about fundamental change. We can accomplish some of this change on our own. Some of it in collaboration with others. And some of it by supporting others who will do it themselves. This presentation illustrates key AACN community accomplishments from the past fiscal year. (Recommended minimum of 30 minutes).
