The Academy launched the Institute for Nursing Leadership that will serve as the umbrella for nurse appointments and leadership development. This is made possible through a generous matching grant from Pfizer, Inc. 

In addition, the Academy is a member of the Steering Committee for the national Nurses on Boards Coalition supporting the Campaign for Action's goal of achieving 10,000 nurse appointments by 2020.

All of the Academy fellows are accomplished leaders in research, policy, education and/or practice. And, all fellows are in a position to lead change and improve the health of their community and country. Many Academy fellows have been appointed or elected to serve governments and organizations at the national, state, and local levels. Click here to view a few organizations in which the Academy's fellows have served or currently serve.

Fellows can see open appointments at our Service Opportunities section.

Thank you to all who attended the 2015 Leadership Workshop and Luncheon! As mentioned in the workshop, all fellows are encouraged to look through the Board Suggested ReadingsWe look forward to seeing you next year at the the Marriott Marquis in Washington, DC, October 20, 2016.
