Our accreditation conference is your opportunity to engage in scholarship, learn new educational practices, meet and network with your peers, interact with the ACEN Board of Commissioners, meet our dynamic Chief Executive Officer, and enjoy the numerous amenities of Atlanta, Georgia. In fact, family activities, restaurants, parks, and shopping are within walking distance from the Omni Atlanta Hotel – CNN Center.

Topics for one-hour sessions and poster presentations include, but are not limited to, creative partnerships for nursing programs; innovative online or hybrid delivery of nursing courses or nursing programs; resourceful utilization of preceptors; inventive faculty mentoring programs; faculty evaluation processes; student orientation programs; grievance and/or complaint procedures; curriculum maps for established professional nursing standards, guidelines, competencies, diversity, and standards of practice; academic progression pathways, assessment of student learning outcomes; assessment of program outcomes; and data collection and analysis of job placement rates.
