ISNCC wishes to congratulate Patsy
Yates, Past ISNCC Secretary Treasurer on her induction into the American
Academy of Nursing!
The Academy is composed of more than
2,000 nurse leaders in education, management, practice, policy, and research.
The Academy Fellows include hospital and government administrators, college
deans, and renowned scientific researchers. With this new class, Fellows will
represent all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and 19 countries.
Selection criteria include evidence
of significant contributions to nursing and health care and sponsorship by two
current Academy Fellows. Applicants are reviewed by a panel comprised of
elected and appointed Fellows, and selection is based, in part, on the extent
the nominee’s nursing careers influenced health policies and the heath and
wellbeing of all. New Fellows will be eligible to use the credentials FAAN
(Fellow of the American Academy of Nursing) after their induction in October.
