As the largest health profession, Nursing offers a variety of dynamic career choices, including opportunities to practice independently, teach across settings, conduct scientific research, shape public policies, and provide direct patient care. AACN champions the advancement of the nursing profession by supporting deans, faculty and students enrolled in baccalaureate and graduate level nursing education programs. Among its many roles, the organization is committed to advancing policies and practices that bring under-represented populations into nursing, including men and students from diverse backgrounds. AACN works in tandem with the larger health care community to advocate for more federal funding for nursing education and establish partnerships that provide scholarships and new resources for nursing students.
