What are the AACN Categories?

The categories are for AACN, which stands for the American Association of Critical-care Nurses. Category A is Clinical Judgment and Clinical Inquiry. Category B is Advocacy & Moral Agency, Caring Practices, Response to Diversity, Facilitation of Learning. Category C is Collaboration and Systems Thinking. If you are not a critical care nurse (CCRN), you can ignore these categories and focus on the contact hours.
