American Academy of Nursing Nominates New Fellows

Washington, DC-The American Academy of Nursing has nominated 82 new fellows for induction this year. The 2003 nominees represent a variety of disciplines within the field of nursing. One of the criterion for Academy membership is recognition by one’s peers of having made outstanding contributions to nursing over and above those which are required in one’s position of employment. Each nominee also must be sponsored for membership by two Academy fellows. This year’s slate of nominees of exceptional nursing leaders are educators, researchers, entrepreneurs, and association executives.

The new fellows will be formally inducted into the American Academy of Nursing on Saturday, November 15, 2003, during the Academy’s 30th Annual Meeting and Conference at The La Costa Resort & Spa in San Diego, California.

The American Academy of Nursing was established in 1973 to provide visionary leadership to the nursing profession and the public in shaping future health care policy and practice and optimizes the well-being of the American people through the synthesis of scientific and philosophical knowledge as the basis for effective health care policy and practice. There are currently some 1500 fellows in the Academy.

Congratulations to Janet Grossman, MSN, RN, BSN, CS, DN on her selection for this honor.
