Comprised of the nation’s most accomplished nurse leaders in education, management, practice, policy and research, the American Academy of Nursing (AAN) is one of the most highly regarded fellowships in the nursing profession. With 50 nurses accomplishing this milestone, Emory is home to one of the largest concentration of fellows inducted into the AAN. For 2019, Emory has 10 new fellows, the largest class in a single year. “As leaders in nursing education, practice, and transformative research, these honorees embody our mission of visionary nurse leadership at Emory,” says Dean Linda McCauley.
