The American Academy of Nursing (AAN) is a professional organization that generates, synthesizes, and disseminates nursing information in order to improve health policy and practice for the public and nursing profession. The group, founded in 1973, is an autonomous affiliate of the American Nurses Association (ANA). Members of the organization are invited on the basis of leadership and accomplishments and designated as Fellows of the American Academy of Nursing (FAAN).
