Joyce Thomas to be inducted into prestigious American Academy of Nursing
DVAAC Steering Committee Member Joyce Thomas will be inducted as a fellow in the American Academy of Nursing (AAN) on November 11th, 2007.
Thomas was selected for being “a premier nursing leader and scholar in the child abuse arena,” says Jackie Campbell, Ph.D., RN, Anna D. Wolf Chair and professor at John Hopkins University.
Campbell co-wrote Thomas’ letter of nomination with Phyllis Sharps, Ph.D., RN, professor at John Hopkins University.
In addition to recognizing Thomas’ accomplishments in nursing, AAN Fellows Campbell and Sharps commended her contributions to IDVAAC.
The Academy is comprised of 1,500 accomplished nursing leaders with various backgrounds in education, management, practice, and research. Being a fellow not only recognizes one’s achievements, but enables members to work closely with other leaders to address policy issues.
