  • A community of scholarship in which to exchange a variety of novel ideas, share successes/ failures, and keep current with contemporary practices in nursing education
  • 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.
