AALTCN is a fairly new association that promotes the importance of the entire nursing department of long term care facilities. The organizational will attempt to remove" fragmenting silos to promote working relationships that support a caring culture" by addressing issues that affect the entire team. This quote appears in the November 2007, Provider magazine, the journal for long-term care professionals.

This is a refreshing approach for a nursing-focused association and organization.
