Nursing Academy Announces 2014 Honorary Fellows
Supporters of nursing leadership to be inducted as Honorary Fellows in the American Academy of Nursing.

WASHINGTON, DC (September 15, 2014)— The American Academy of Nursing is composed of the most accomplished nursing leaders in education, management, and research.

The Academy, however, readily acknowledges improving health care quality and delivery requires the teamwork of extraordinary individuals outside of the nursing profession.

To honor the contributions of such extraordinary individuals, who are ineligible for regular fellowship, the Academy has created the designation of Honorary Fellows.

The Academy is pleased to announce two Honorary Fellows for 2014:

  • Mary DickowMary Dickow, MPA, is the statewide director for the California Action Coalition for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Future of Nursing initiative at the Institute of Medicine. In this role, she has built momentum to build bridges and empower nurses throughout California.
  • Corinne H. RiederCorinne H. Rieder, EdD, is the executive director of the John A. Hartford Foundation Through her leadership, Hartford supports the work and education of geriatric nurse specialists. This support has significantly improved the health and health care of older adults in the United States.
These Honorary Fellows will be inducted at a ceremony on Saturday, October 18, 2014, in Washington, DC. The induction ceremony for these Honorary Fellows, as well as the new 2014 class of fellows, is considered the pinnacle of the American Academy of Nursing’s Transforming Health, Driving Policy Conference. For more information on the conference, visit www.AANnet.org/2014.

“Honorary Fellows understand, appreciate, and rely on the work of nurses,” says Academy president Diana Mason. “This year’s Honorary Fellows have taken great strides to advance nursing perspectives on health and health care, and I look forward to honoring them at the induction ceremony.”

To become an Honorary Fellow, an individual must be sponsored by three Academy fellows and demonstrate their extraordinary contributions to nursing and health care. The Academy’s board of directors selects only a few from many applicants to become inducted as an Honorary Fellow each year.

Vote in Leadership Election
If you haven't already, cast your vote in the 2014 Academy Leadership Elections. Current fellows have through Friday, August 15, to submit their electronic ballot. Honorary fellows and new fellow inductees are not eligible to vote. Review the candidates and vote.
Policy
The Academy joined the Nursing Community to support S. 2154/ H.R. 4290, to reauthorize the Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) Program. The legislation would fund the EMSC program for FY2015–2019. This is the only federal program that focuses specifically on improving the pediatric components of the emergency medical services system.

Building on last year's National Defense Authorization Act to address sexual assault within the military by establishing appropriate training requirements for personnel performing sexual assault examinations, Sen. Boxer will introduce a bill that requires each military branch to ensure a 40-hour didactic standard for SANE training. The Academy joined the International Association of Forensic Nurses to send a letter to Sen. Boxer in support of this legislation.
Have You Ever Served in the Military?
NEW LAW. Connecticut passed a new requirement for hospitals in its state to ask all patients if they are military veterans. The Academy is working to emulate this law in other states.

FELLOW OP-ED. Rose Constantino, PhD, JD, RN, FAAN, expressed her concerns about veteran care in the Pittsburg Post-Gazette and urged private sector clinicians to ask, "Have you ever served in the military?"

PACKETS SHIPPED. Last month, the Academy shipped informational packets to 1,400 Federally Qualified Health Centers and 500 mental health clinics nationwide. This is the initiative's largest rollout to date.

PERSONAL STORIES. Narrative Inquiry in Bioethics will publish a collection of personal stories from war veterans (combat and non-combat) about meeting their health care needs. Veterans’ stories may address a variety of health care needs, and a variety of health care settings. Contact the Academy for more information. Deadline is August 30.

Have You Ever Served in the Military?
Bob Woodruff Foundation & the American Academy of Nursing Join Forces to Improve Veterans Health
The American Academy of Nursing received a generous grant from the Bob Woodruff Foundation to take its veterans health initiative, Have You Ever Served in the Military?, nationwide.

WASHINGTON, DC (September 11, 2014)— The American Academy of Nursing is proud to receive a grant for its military veterans health initiative from the Bob Woodruff Foundation (BWF).

BWF works to ensure injured veterans and their families thrive long after they return home. The team at BWJ seeks out, pulls together, and funds a nationwide network of top-tier programs and advocates working to help our heroes on the home front. The Academy is proud to join this network.

The Academy’s Have You Ever Served in the Military? is a new awareness initiative to fundamentally improve the way nurses conduct health assessments of individuals who have served in the uniformed military. The initiative is the Academy’s commitment to the First Lady’s Joining Forces campaign that calls attention to the unique health needs of service members, veterans, and their families.

Through this initiative, nurses and other healthcare providers are made aware of the importance of asking all patients if they or a family member have ever served in the military. If “yes” is the answer, the initiative’s materials ensure that providers have at their ready a series of pertinent questions to ask the veteran or family member.

Asking this simple question, “Have you ever served in the military?,” will assist providers in obtaining more complete and accurate military service histories and identify possible environmental health exposures, health factors, or illnesses related to such service. Nurses, healthcare’s boots on the ground, are uniquely positioned to bring about this fundamental and necessary change.

With the challenges confronting VA hospitals, Congress looks to the private sector to ease the VA backlog. But, as Academy president Diana Mason, PhD, RN, FAAN, cautions, “less than half of all non-VA health providers ask patients if they are veterans. The Academy’s initiative seeks to close the knowledge gap between health providers and their patients.”

The Academy launched Have You Ever Served in the Military? in ten states; now with BWF’s generosity, it has taken the initiative nationwide. Over five thousand clinics, hospitals, mental health centers, and nurse leaders in all states have received this information essential to improve the health and recovery of veterans and their families.

Receiving the grant from BWF is an honor that recognizes the dedication, focus, and effectiveness of the Academy. Working together, the American Academy of Nursing and the Bob Woodruff Foundation will improve the health and quality of life of America’s returning heroes.
