LEARN, APPLY, SHARE

The ACEN hosts a variety of meetings, forums, and events throughout the year, designed to help you to learn new skills, apply your knowledge, and share your successes.

For nursing program administrators and/or others with nursing program administrative responsibilities who are new to ACEN accreditation, we offer a one-day Program Administrators Workshop, which provides you with information related to ACEN Standards and Criteria, policies, and processes, as well as helpful direction related to reporting and maintaining documentation. For administrators, faculty, and staff preparing for a site visit, and anyone else who may desire a refresher on the current standards, we offer our two-day Self-Study Forums. The forum is your chance to dive deeper into the ACEN Standards and Criteria through in-depth reviews with the ACEN in-house nurse educators. It is highly recommended that you bring your program’s Systematic Plan of Evaluation (SPE) for real-time application of what you’re learning! Forums are also frequently preceded by a Program Administrators Workshop to make it possible for you to attend both events consecutively.

The crème de la crème of ACEN events is the ACEN Annual Accreditation Conference. This event is open to anyone wishing to connect with nursing education colleagues from all over the world and across all levels of nursing preparation. The conference brings a community of scholarship in which to exchange a variety of novel ideas, share successes, and keep current with the contemporary practices in nursing education.
