Cynda H. Rushton, PhD, RN, FAAN, a Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing associate professor, is one of 20 nurses nationwide selected as a 2006 Robert Wood Johnson Executive Nurse Fellow. The three-year fellowship program is designed to strategically position the voice of nursing across many sectors of the economy in a health care system undergoing unprecedented change and challenges. “Nurses must play a pivotal role in leading the redesign and success of health care now and into the future,” said Rushton and noted that she is honored and excited to have “an intensive opportunity to develop critical leadership skills, work with a nationally recognized team of coaches and instructors from within the health care industry as well as from other sectors of the economy, and benefit from collaboration with nursing and health care leaders throughout the country.”
