July 13‒15, 2022 – ACEN Conference: REACHING NEW HEIGHTS
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 of this conference 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, technology for governing organizations, nursing programs, classrooms, hospitals, clinical experiences, and preceptor experiences.
