Professor Alison Moriarty Daley was selected this week as one of the American Academy of Nursing’s 195 highly distinguished nurse leaders to be inducted into its 2018 class of Academy fellows. Alison will be honored at a ceremony to be held during the Academy’s annual policy conference, Transforming Health, Driving Policy, which will take place November 1-3, 2018, in Washington, D.C.
Alison is jointly appointed as an associate professor at Yale School of Nursing and the Yale-New Haven Hospital Hill Regional Career High School School-Based Health Center. She is a member of, and specialty coordinator for, the Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Specialty. She teaches Primary Care of the Adolescent and the clinical course Clinical Practice in the Primary Care of Adolescents. Read more about her work here.
Fellow 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 career has influenced health policies and the health and wellbeing of all. New fellows will be eligible to use the FAAN credential (fellow of the American Academy of Nursing) after the induction ceremony takes place in November.
“I am delighted to recognize this outstanding class of nurse leaders as Academy fellows,” said Academy President Karen Cox, PhD, RN, FAAN. “Along with the rest of the fellowship, I look forward to celebrating their array of talents and impressive accomplishments at our policy conference, and then working with them to apply our collective knowledge to transforming health policy.”
