Between 2012 and 2050, the United States will experience exponential growth in its older population. In 2050, the population age 65 and over is projected to be 83.7 million, almost double its 2012 estimated population of 43.1 million. The aging of the population will have wide-ranging implications for all facets of the health care sector, especially nursing homes.
There has perhaps never been more opportunities and challenges for post-acute care nurse leaders. The American Association of Post-Acute Care Nursing (AAPACN) advances its mission through two membership divisions, the American Association of Nurse Assessment Coordination (AANAC) and the American Association of Directors of Nursing Services (AADNS). Membership in these high-impact organizations provides access to accurate and timely information regarding policy and regulatory changes, on-going education, networking and advocacy opportunities for nurse leaders and their teams of healthcare professionals.
AAPACN seeks a transformational leader who is passionate about the well-being of older adults and understands the unique challenges nursing homes confront in providing quality care for long-term residents. This individual avidly advocates for high quality elder care and the continued professional development of nurse leaders. The candidate will work collaboratively with the Board and staff to chart the future course of AAPACN.
This leader has improved the outcomes of a complex organization, made high-level decisions and implemented best organizational practices. Highly qualified candidates have experience in one or more of the following areas, nursing, long-term care, senior healthcare policy, and/or professional associations for health care professionals.
