We are honored to announce that the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN) has named Megan E. Brunson MSN, RN, CNL, CCRN-CSC, as president-elect for 2018-2019 and will transition to AACN presidency for 2019-2020. Megan is currently a night shift supervisor of the cardiovascular intensive care unit (CVICU) at Medical City Dallas, a position she has held since 2007.
The AACN, the world’s largest specialty nursing organization, announced its board of directors for fiscal year 2019, with terms effective July 1, 2018.
AACN represents the interests of more than half a million acute and critical care nurses and includes more than 200 chapters in the United States. The organization’s vision is to create a healthcare system driven by the needs of patients and their families in which acute and critical care nurses make their optimal contribution.
During more than 20 years as a night shift nurse, Megan has focused on securing professional development resources for nurses in a 24/7 care environment. Brunson previously served on the AACN board from 2014-2017, including a one-year term as treasurer.
