Serving Houston-area nurses since 1972

AACN Houston is the local chapter of the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses, the largest specialty nursing organization in the world. We are joined by around 100,000 other AACN members around the world who care for the highly acute and critically ill patients and their families. Our mission is to provide education and community to nurses who live and work in the greater metropolitan Houston area, specifically in the Texas Medical Center, the largest medical complex in the world. The chapter meets every first Thursdays of the month in various venues around the city. No general monthly membership meetings in the months of June through August. The chapter will resume its regularly scheduled meetings in September.
