Mary Lou Manning, PhD, CRNP, CIC, associate professor at Jefferson School of Nursing, has been selected as a Fellow of the American Academy of Nursing. She will be inducted during the Academy’s 40th annual meeting on October 19, 2013, in Washington, D.C.
“Selection for fellowship in the Academy is one of the most prestigious honors in the field of nursing,” said Academy president Joanne Disch, PhD, RN, FAAN. “I congratulate all of the new Fellows and look forward to honoring their accomplishments and welcoming them into the Academy.”
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 health 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.
