AACN's CNL Summit provides a national forum for all healthcare and academic audiences currently implementing or interested in exploring CNL education and practice. Major health systems across the nation have discovered how CNLs transform practice and improve care. The Summit showcases these achievements in education and practice and provides tools to enhance an understanding of the changing healthcare environment and the value added by CNLs.  The role of CNLs is growing and the summit provides a great opportunity to network and learn about the vast work of CNL’s across the healthcare continuum.

Offering robust discussions related to the changing healthcare and practice environments, this conference is ideal for deans, faculty, CNOs, nurse managers, other health professionals, practicing CNLs and students!
