College of Nursing colleagues Lynn Gilbert, PhD, RN, PNP-C, and Mary Beth Flynn Makic, PhD ’07, RN, CNS, CCNS, have been inducted as fellows of the American Academy of Nursing. Gilbert is an associate professor in the pediatric nurse practitioner program. Makic is an assistant professor adjoint and a research nurse scientist at the University of Colorado Hospital.
Invitation to Fellowship is more than recognition of one's accomplishments within the nursing profession. Academy Fellows also have a responsibility to contribute their time and energies to the Academy, and to engage with other health care leaders outside the Academy in transforming America's health care system.
