AACN ESSENTIALS

AACN Essentials

ATI’s comprehensive program-wide approach is positioned at its core to support the same learning methods outlined by the AACN as important to the success of competency-based education. With solutions built on a foundation of iterative learning – including critical concepts and competencies woven throughout a diverse set of interactive tutorials, clinical experiences, assessments, and remediation – we share the same goals and beliefs as the AACN around competency-based education and greater standardization of new nurse preparedness.

“Given changes in higher education, learner expectations, and the rapidly evolving healthcare system outlined in AACN’s Vision for Academic Nursing (2019), new thinking and new approaches to nursing education are needed to prepare the nursing workforce of the future.” – AACN

AN IDEAL STRUCTURE FOR COMPETENCY-BASED EDUCATION

In the new Essentials, AACN shares the important role played by educational structure in achieving these new competencies. ATI is proud to offer a platform of solutions that ideally aligns to this structure, including:
