Journal Article (Journal Article)

Based upon an awareness of the need to increase its policy footprint, the American Association of Colleges of Nursing's (AACN) Board of Directors convened a think tank of nurse experts in the field of policy curriculum to advise the Board. The goal of the think tank was to review the current landscape, analyze trends, and create a set of recommendations for AACN's Board to consider. The Faculty Policy Think Tank (FPTT) met between 2016 and 2017 to review and reflect on methods to increase expertise of nursing faculty and students in health policy and make recommendations to the AACN Board to advance the agenda of the organization, member schools, and the profession. This article describes the methods and processes the Think Tank employed to develop a set of recommendations for the AACN Board of Directors.
