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.

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.

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.
