On Saturday, October 18, 2014, the American Academy of Nursing, at their 2014 Transforming Health, Driving Policy Conference in Washington, DC, inducted two University of Utah College of Nursing faculty, Patricia Murphy CNM, DrPH, FACNM and Mollie Cummins, PhD, RN as Fellows of the American Academy of Nursing (FAAN). Drs. Muphy and Cummins join with the Academy's more than 2,200 fellows who are nursing’s most accomplished leaders in education, management, practice and research.
Selection criteria include evidence of significant contributions to nursing and health care and sponsorship by two current fellows. Fellows are chosen based, in part, on the extent their nursing career influences health policies and the health and well- being of the nation.
“We are so proud to have Dr. Murphy and Dr. Cummins inducted as Fellows in the American Academy of Nursing" says Dean Trish Morton. "This is one of the highest honors nurses can receive in recognition of their national contributions to healthcare and nursing and of the 3.1 million nurses in this country, only 2,200 have been inducted as fellows.”
