Our Mission

Kern County's chapter of ACNL supports local nurses in advancing the professional practice. We host an annual RN of the Year Dinner that recognizes outstanding work by nurses and raises funds for nursing scholarships. We support the RN Explorers in introducing high school students to the nursing profession.
