Congratulations to Professor Sandy Middleton who was inducted as a Fellow of the American Academy of Nursing. The American Academy of Nursing serves the public and the nursing profession by advancing health policy and practice through the generation, synthesis, and dissemination of nursing knowledge.
The academy's more than 2,300 fellows are nursing's most accomplished leaders in education, management, practice, and research. They have been recognised for their extraordinary contributions to nursing and health care.
Applicants were reviewed by a panel comprised of elected and appointed fellows, and selection is based, in part, on the extent of how the nominee’s nursing career has influenced health policies, and population health and well-being.
Professor Middleton travelled to Washington DC in early October to accept her appointment at the 2017 Transforming Health, Driving Policy Conference hosted by the American Academy of Nursing.
