AACN's national office will be closed for a summer pause from July 15-19, 2024.

Everyone has a story. We want to hear yours.

Sharing stories about our experience as nurses, and individuals, has been part of our collective journey for more than fifty years. With your help we want to shine a brighter light on America’s most-trusted profession and the people who bring humanity, compassion and integrity to nursing – now and into the future. We want to hear your story. You can submit your story in writing using our Nurse Story form, or you can record your story with the StoryCorps app and upload your audio to an archive, which is housed at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.
