Six more Johns Hopkins School of Nursing faculty members have been accepted as fellows of the American Academy of Nursing, “and it now means that almost half of our full-time faculty are FAANs,” said Dean Patricia M. Davidson, PhD, MEd, RN, FAAN, herself a fellow. “This is one of the ultimate professional recognitions.”
The six are Jill Hamilton, PhD, RN (who joined the school this summer); Nancy Hodgson, PhD, RN; Joan Kub, PhD, MA, PHCNS, BC; Hayley Mark, PhD, MPH, RN; Sarah Szanton, PhD, ANP; and Elizabeth “Ibby” Tanner, PhD, RN.
“As clinicians, researchers, educators, executives, and leaders in all sectors of our society, they are joining the nation’s thought leaders in nursing and healthcare,” said Diana Mason, PhD, RN, president of American Academy of Nursing.
Selection criteria include evidence of significant contributions to nursing and healthcare and sponsorship by two current academy fellows. Applicants are reviewed by a panel of elected and appointed fellows, and selection is based, in part, on the extent the nominee’s nursing career has influenced health policies and the health and well-being of all.
New fellows will be eligible to use the credentials FAAN after their induction in October.
