ACNN is an international nonprofit organization of nurses and other health care professionals caring for children with neurological conditions. Our members work in hospitals, private practices, clinics and academic facilities and practice in a variety of roles.

ACNN’s mission is to promote excellence in child neurology nursing practice through the development and support of nurses caring for children with neurological conditions. We aim to advance standards of care, provide educational opportunities, foster research and facilitate regional and international multidisciplinary collaboration.

Membership is open to all nurses caring for children with neurological conditions.

Associate membership is available to other health care professionals who care for children with neurological conditions including physicians, physician's assistants and therapists.

Currently, we have members from the United States, Canada, Australia and Korea.
