The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) is pleased to announce the release of a new Vision for Sharing Data and Information Across Nursing Education, Practice, and Regulation. Approved by the AACN Board of Directors, this document calls for developing an integrated information system - supported by technology, people, and processes – that facilitates the sharing of data and information among schools of nursing, healthcare settings, and regulatory bodies. The new statement provides recommendations for schools to consider when evaluating technologies, including those focused on the implementation of the AACN Essentials, as well as for companies looking to offer solutions to meet the needs of nursing schools and the larger healthcare community.
Webinar: Using Technology and Data to Support the Move to Competency-Based Education (CBE)
Tuesday, Jan. 24

Members of the Technology Working Group will provide an outline of the new vision during this webinar. Transitioning to CBE requires new ways of teaching and learning, which can be facilitated by technology.

The webinar is free to faculty, staff, and students from AACN member schools.
