    The American Academy of Ambulatory Care Nursing (AAACN) is a welcoming, unifying community for registered nurses in all ambulatory care settings.

    AAACN offers ambulatory care nurses:

    • Connections with other nurses in similar roles
    • Help in advancing their practice and leadership skills
    • Advocacy that promotes greater appreciation for the specialty of ambulatory care nursing.

    AAACN (formerly the American Academy of Ambulatory Nursing Administration) was founded in 1978 as a not for profit, educational forum. AAACN is a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit corporation incorporated in the state of New Jersey. AAACN provided education resources, study resources for certification, networking opportunities, leadership and volunteer opportunities, and more.

    In 1993, the organization's name was changed to the American Academy of Ambulatory Care Nursing (AAACN). Membership was broadened to include nurses in clinical practice, education, and research roles as well as those in management and administration, and today the association has more than 4,400 members.

    AAACN is the only specialty nursing association that focuses on excellence in ambulatory care.

    Our mission is to advance the art and science of ambulatory care nursing
