The Academy launched the Institute for Nursing Leadership in 2014 which serves as the umbrella for nurse appointments and leadership development. The launch was made possible through a generous matching grant from Pfizer, Inc.
In addition, the Academy is a member of the Steering Committee for the national Nurses on Boards Coalition supporting the Campaign for Action's goal of achieving 10,000 nurse appointments by 2020.
All of the Academy fellows are accomplished leaders in research, policy, education and/or practice. And, all fellows are in a position to lead change and improve the health of their community and country. Many Academy fellows have been appointed or elected to serve governments and organizations at the national, state, and local levels.
