Charting the Future Together, presented by: American Association of Critical-Care Nurses

    Help Us Chart the Future!

    Charting the Future Together is a collaborative discovery and exploration journey, and we’d love to have you join us in shaping the future of our nursing community! With our mission of driving excellence in acute and critical care nursing, AACN aims to inspire every nurse in our community to discover personal connections, pursue clinical advancement, and cultivate a deeper sense of purpose in your support of patients and families. In doing so, we can collectively advocate for and drive toward our vision of a healthcare system driven by the needs of nurses, patients and families.

    The Goal: With Charting the Future Together, the goal is to gather a wide range of input from our diverse community, including members, non-members, and nursing students, to understand the current and future needs of the profession. We hope to involve as many individuals as possible throughout the different stages of this program and we will keep you updated on developments as they progress.
