DON Resources with a Solid ROI

Take the challenge out of professional development and training with an organizational membership with the American Association of Post-Acute Care Nursing, the parent organization of AADNS and the American Association of Nurse Assessment Coordination(AANAC).  An organizational membership provides both your DONs and NACs with reimbursement and clinical operations information, resources, and tools.

Benefits of an Organizational Membership

Staff Training and Improved Retention

According to Gallup research, employees who are “engaged and thriving” are 60% less likely to look for a new job with a different organization. With an AAPACN organizational membership, you can ensure that your top nursing staff is engaged and committed to your organization by providing new hires with the foundational knowledge they need to hit the ground running and long-time staff with opportunities for growth and advanced learning.
