AONL, AACN collaborate to address shared challenges

AONL and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing are leveraging their combined strengths to address challenges threatening nursing’s future. Both organizations seek to recruit and retain nursing faculty, build strong academic-practice partnerships to strengthen the pipeline of diverse nurses and secure additional funding and resources to educate students and hire nurses. They want to develop leadership, strengthen nursing’s image and maximize the impact of technology. A summary of a joint meeting held earlier this year outlines initiatives they plan to work on with their members to address these issues.
