Academy to Induct 231 Nurse Leaders at Annual Policy Conference in October


Washington, DC, June 21, 2019 - The American Academy of Nursing (Academy) recently announced the selection of candidates for its 2019 class of Academy fellows. The Institute for Medicaid Innovation’s founding executive director, Jennifer Moore, PhD, RN, is one of 231 nurse leaders chosen for this prestigious honor. With more than 20 years of experience, Dr. Moore’s work, at the intersection of clinical practice, research, and policy, positions her as a thought leader and a passionate advocate for vulnerable populations.

“I am proud to welcome this incredible class of leaders to the American Academy of Nursing," said Academy President Karen Cox, PhD, RN, FACHE, FAAN. "Their amazing accomplishments have changed health and health care across the country and around the globe. I look forward to celebrating the new fellows at our 2019 policy conference and working with them in the future so that our collective knowledge can impact and influence health policy."

A committee of elected fellows reviewed hundreds of applications, selecting new fellows based on their contributions to increase access, reduce cost, and improve quality through nursing theory, practice, and science. Dr. Moore’s induction into the Academy serves as a significant milestone and recognition of her accomplishments by those within the nursing discipline. Of the 29 million nurses in the U.S., the Academy currently has only 2,400 fellows; a prestigious honor representing less than 1% of all nurses.     

"It is an honor to be recognized and included amongst other national and international clinical, research, and policy leaders who are committed to the health and well-being of all people,” said Dr. Moore.

The inductees will be honored at a ceremony during the Academy's annual policy conference, Transforming Health, Driving Policy, which will take place October 24-26, 2019 in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the American Academy of Nursing and the 2019 policy conference, click here.
