For five decades, AACN has been at the forefront of critical and progressive care nursing education. Alongside visionaries, educators and practitioners, we come together every year at the National Teaching Institute & Critical Care Exposition (NTI) to reshape ourselves, our careers and the world of nursing.

Professional Growth

Every aspect of your nursing practice is covered at NTI. Learn the latest on nearly 50 topics, and hone your clinical and professional practice skills.


SuperSessions and other opportunities to celebrate offer the renewal you need to reconnect with your love for nursing and to be inspired to share it with others back home.


Meaningful networking is a hallmark of every in-person NTI. During sessions, celebrations and the Expo, there are so many opportunities to meet people, make friends and exchange ideas.
