Margaret-Ann Carno, PhD, RN, D, ABSM, PNP,FAAN, assistant professor of clinical nursing and pediatrics for the School of Nursing, was one of 142 nurse leaders inducted as a fellow of the American Academy of Nursing (AAN) during the academy’s 38th annual meeting and conference on October 15, 2011, in Washington, D.C. This year’s inductees hail from across the United States, Canada, England, South Korea, and Taiwan.
“Selection for membership in the academy is one of the most prestigious honors in the field of nursing,” said Academy President Catherine L. Gilliss, DNSc, RN, FAAN. “Academy fellows are truly experts. The academy fellowship represents the nation’s top nurse researchers, policymakers, scholars, executives, educators, and practitioners.”
Selection criteria includes evidence of significant contributions to nursing and health care, and is based, in part, on the extent to which nominees’ nursing careers influence health policies and health care delivery for the benefit of Americans. The inductees are selected by a panel comprising elected and appointed fellows; each nominee must be sponsored by two current academy fellows. The academy is made up of more than 1,600 nursing leaders in education, management, practice, policy, and research.
Carno, who was appointed to the School of Nursing faculty in 2005, earned her PhD from the University of Pittsburgh and completed her post-master’s certification at Rochester. She specializes in sleep concerns in children and adolescents.
