Two College of Nursing and Health Innovation faculty recently received one of the highest honors in their field when they were selected as fellows of the American Academy of Nursing.

Carolyn Cason, emeritus professor, and Joy Don Baker, clinical associate professor, were two of the 163 nursing leaders chosen for the 2015 class. Fellows are selected for their significant contributions to nursing and health care and include hospital and government administrators; college presidents, chancellors, and deans; and renowned scientific researchers and entrepreneurs.

“We are pleased to welcome this talented class of clinicians, researchers, policy leaders, educators, and executives as they join the nation’s thought-leaders in nursing and health care,” says Academy President Diana J. Mason. “We look forward to working with them to continue the Academy’s work in transforming health policy and practice through the use of our collective nursing knowledge.”
