The 2020 ACEN Accreditation Conference Has Been Cancelled

The 2020 ACEN Accreditation Conference Has Been Cancelled

On behalf of the CEO, Board of Commissioners, and Staff, the ACEN has made the difficult yet necessary decision to cancel the Nursing Education Accreditation Conference (NEAC) scheduled for July 16-18, 2020.

There is a possibility the COVID-19 pandemic will continue to evolve for weeks, even months to come. As a result, we understand the unprecedented disruptions to your institutional operations and the significant alteration of the needs, wants, and expectations of your role as a nurse, a nurse educator, or nurse leader. Above all else, we recognize the importance of dedicating your current focus to the well-being of yourself, your family and loved ones, your students, and those in the communities you serve.

Although there may be feelings of disappointment and frustration due to the inconvenience of multiple cancellations, please know that support from the ACEN is NOT cancelled. As we adjust to the new normalcy of virtual operations, we strive to continue offering various opportunities for nursing programs to enhance their quality of education and contribute to organizational growth. It is our priority as the leader in nursing education accreditation to adapt to the ever-changing work environments of our constituents. We want to assure you that the ACEN is currently exploring and will continue to explore the use of effective digital and virtual tools that, if needed, can easily facilitate any future educational offerings.

Before the pandemic passes, as it will, we have a lot to gain from showing acts of encouragement and service toward our communities. The ACEN recognizes the tremendous sacrifices and continuous generosity being displayed by many people during this unparalleled crisis, and we would like to extend our sincerest gratitude.

We thank you for patience as we get through this together. Keep up the great work as we extend our thoughts and well wishes to everyone!



The ACEN is committed to providing the quality service you deserve.
