Inspiring Nurse Leaders

In 1967, a collection of nurse administrators from the AHA Council of Nursing organized themselves into a personal membership group of the American Hospital Association with a mission to create a professional home for nurse leaders.

Fifty years later, AONE is the preeminent organization for nurse leaders. Echoing the founders’ aims to develop the profession of nursing leadership, today the organization represents nearly 10,000 members from across the health care spectrum.
