The Minnesota Alliance for Nursing Education (MANE) welcomes interested academic programs and is committed to collaborating with nursing programs planning to adopt the MANE curriculum.
Adoption of the MANE curriculum is a significant commitment requiring support from campus administrators, faculty peers in multiple disciplines and student support services staff. Key elements of success are advance planning and early involvement of campus community. Implementation planning and activities will minimally require a calendar year prior to the proposed start date.

The Minnesota Center for Nursing and the Minnesota Alliance for Nursing Education (MANE) are honored to recognize Ann M. Jones’ contributions to transforming nursing education by establishing the Ann M. Jones Institute for Innovation in Nursing Education. Ann passed away too soon on October 29, 2014. The Institute in Ann’s honor supports nursing faculty development across Minnesota through symposia, workshops and other events.
Ann’s call to be a nurse came in a small village in Mexico when she was in high school. She stated “There was no health care and I wondered how people would receive care in such a remote place. Over the years my practice led me to nursing education. My commitment has been to nursing education that produces excellent nurses who make a difference in the world just as I was called to so many years ago.”
In addition to her roles within nursing practice, Ann served as Director of Education and Credentialing at the Minnesota Board of Nursing. Ann was one of three incorporating members of the Minnesota Center for Nursing. She also significantly impacted nursing education as a founding member of the Minnesota Alliance for Nursing Education (MANE). MANE’s mission to increase “baccalaureate-prepared nurses through collaborative, transformative educational strategies” will be continued through the Ann M. Jones Institute for Innovation in Nursing Education.
