our nurse leaders, Patricia Howard, PhD, RN, has been chosen as a fellow
of the American Academy of Nursing. Dr. Howard is also a fellow of the Academy of Emergency Nursing.

educators and practitioners from across the country were selected for

Becoming a fellow involves a rigorous process. Fellows must
demonstrate a significant contribution to nursing and health care and be
sponsored by two current academy fellows. Applicants are reviewed by
elected and appointed fellows, and selection is based in part on how a
nominee has influenced heath policy.
We congratulate Dr. Howard on this prestigious honor.
