American Association of Neuroscience Nurses (AANN)
he American Association of Neuroscience Nurses (AANN) is committed to working for the highest standard of care for neuroscience patients by advancing the science and practice of neuroscience nursing.
A neuroscience nurse is a nursing professional that helps patients suffering from neurological problems. This can include injuries, such as head and spinal trauma from accidents, or illnesses, such as Parkinson's disease, meningitis, encephalitis, epilepsy, and multiple sclerosis. AANN supports neuroscience nurses and their patients by providing continuing education and certification preparatory materials, disseminating information, setting standards, and advocating on behalf of neuroscience patients, families, and nurses.
Led by the AANN Board of Directors, AANN connects, educates, and inspires nurses as leaders who influence comprehensive neuroscience health.
AANN is indispensable to nurses and neuroscience healthcare.
