The American Organization for Nursing Leadership (AONL) is the national organization of nurses who design, facilitate and manage care. With more than 9,800 members, AONL is the voice of nursing leadership in health care. AONL is a subsidiary of the American Hospital Association.

AONL supports the following core principles:

  • A robust and diverse nursing workforce is essential to the health of all Americans.
  • Nurses are integral members of the health care team and are critical to improving quality of care to individuals, improving the health of communities and simultaneously reducing costs.
  • Affordable, accessible, quality health care and improved patient outcomes depend upon patient-centered and comprehensive care provided by interprofessional partnerships of physicians, nurses and other health professionals.
  • Nursing data is central to improve patient outcomes, quality, safety and the delivery of population-based care.
