American Academy of Nursing Announces 2013 Honorary Fellows
Four Individuals Enrich the Nursing Profession
WASHINGTON, DC (August 22, 2013)—The American Academy of Nursing is composed of the most accomplished nursing leaders in education, management, and research. Nevertheless, to improve health care policy and management, the American Academy of Nursing understands that it requires the teamwork of extraordinary individuals outside of the nursing profession.
To honor these extraordinary individuals, who are not eligible for regular fellowship, the Academy designates them as Honorary Fellows.
The Academy is pleased to announce the 2013 class of Honorary Fellows:
The Honorary Fellows will be inducted at a ceremony on Saturday, October 19, 2013, in Washington, DC. The induction ceremony is considered the pinnacle of the American Academy of Nursing’s Annual Transforming Health Care: Driving Policy Conference. For more information on the conference, visit www.AANnet.org.
“The 2013 Honorary Fellows are saluted for their dedication and support to the nursing profession and the essential role nurses play in quality health care,” said Academy president Joanne Disch, PhD, RN, FAAN. “I congratulate the 2013 Honorary Fellows and look forward to honoring them at 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. Then, the Academy’s board of directors selects only a few from many applicants to become inducted as an Honorary Fellow each year. An Honorary Fellow enjoys most of the rights and privileges of an Academy Fellow.
