About the ACEN Nursing Education Accreditation Conference

2022 Conference Theme:

Our 2022 theme “Reaching New Heights” incorporates the lessons we have learned into our community’s “new normal.” Peers within Nursing Education will discuss re-envisioning the future through the positive alternatives and opportunities that were created.

The focus will be how nurse educators can reinvigorate, revitalize, and reignite their profession to strengthen our communities through inclusion, equality, and mental health support. The conference tracks will address teaching and learning methods, curricula, resources, outcomes, and technology for governing organizations, nursing programs, classrooms, hospitals, clinical experiences, and preceptor experiences.

The Nursing Education Accreditation Conference strives to exemplify the philosophy of accreditation and transition-to-practice programs by providing nursing administrators, faculty and students:

  • Personal support through individualized methods that develop and strengthen the effectiveness of accreditation
  • An opportunity to connect with colleagues from all levels of nursing preparation, applaud achievements as a community, and celebrate nurses’ global leadership in health outcomes


The goal of the Nursing Education Accreditation Conference is to create an engaged learning experience that empowers nursing administrators, faculty and students by imparting concepts that enhance the educational quality of nursing programs and contribute to organizational growth.
