The New York University College of Nursing today announces the induction of faculty members, Wendy C. Bundin, PhD, RN-BC, Eloise Balasco Cathcart, MSN, RN and Ann E. Kurth, PhD, CNM, RN as US Fellows into the American Academy of Nursing (AAN). The US Fellows were formally inducted on November 13, 2010 at the Induction Ceremony in Washington, DC. Out of the 108 newly inducted US Fellows, six (6) received their degrees from NYU.

“NYU College of Nursing is dedicated to developing exceptional leaders in the nursing profession,” says Terry Fulmer, NYU College of Nursing. “Our faculty includes many talented educators who provide our students with the knowledge and guidance to become experts in all disciplines of nursing. We are honored Wendy C. Bundin, Eloise Balasco Cathcart, Ann E. Kurth were chosen as US fellows.”

Wendy C. Budin is Director of Nursing Research at NYU Langone Medical Center and holds joint faculty appointments at NYU College of Nursing and Schools of Medicine. Dr. Budin’s sustained, significant and continuing contributions to nursing of women and childbearing families foster exemplary clinical practice and ground-breaking education, earning her a reputation as a national and international leader in prenatal education and breast cancer research.

Eloise Balasco Cathcart is Clinical Associate Professor and Coordinator of the Graduate Program in Nursing Administration at the NYU College of Nursing. A major thread in Professor Cathcart’s career has been the interpretation and use of Patricia Benner’s model of practice articulation in clinical and administrative nursing practice, professional regulation and nursing education.
