Dr. Pace joins 171 nurse leaders from across the world to be honored at the AAN’s 40th Annual Meeting and Conference as an Esteemed Nurse Leader by the Academy

New York University College of Nursing’s (NYUCN) James C. Pace, DSN, MDiv, ANP, BC, FAANP Associate Dean, Undergraduate Programs and Clinical Associate Professor, was selected by the American Academy of Nursing (AAN) for induction as a Fellow during the Academy’s 40th annual meeting on October 19, 2013, in Washington, DC.

"I feel extremely honored to be selected for Fellowship in the Academy of Nursing because its Fellows constantly engage the issues that transform health care policy and practice," said Pace. "I look forward to actively contributing to the Academy's work and mission."

This year, AAN has selected 172 nurse leaders to join its more than 2,000 nurse leaders in education, management, practice, policy, and research. The Academy Fellows include hospital and government administrators, college deans, and renowned scientific researchers. With this new class, Fellows will represent all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and 19 countries.

“Selection for fellowship in the Academy is one of the most prestigious honors in the field of nursing,” said Academy president Joanne Disch, PhD, RN, FAAN. “I congratulate all of the new Fellows and look forward to honoring their accomplishments and welcoming them into the Academy.”

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 careers influenced health policies and the heath and wellbeing of all. New Fellows will be eligible to use the credentials FAAN (Fellow of the American Academy of Nursing) after their induction in October.
