 The American Academy of Nursing has selected Mollie Cummins, PhD, RN, as one of 168 nurse leaders for induction as fellows during the Academy's 2014 Transforming Health, Driving Policy Conference on October 18, 2014, in Washington, DC.

"The American Academy of Nursing welcomes this stellar cohort of new fellows," declared Academy president Diana Mason, PhD, RN, FAAN. "As clinicians, researchers, educators, executives, and leaders in all sectors of our society, they are joining the nation's thought leaders in nursing and health care."

Selection criteria include evidence of significant contributions to nursing and health care and sponsorship by two current Academy fellows. Applicants are reviewed by a panel comprised of elected and appointed fellows, and selection is based, in part, on the extent the nominee's nursing career has influenced health policies and the health and wellbeing of all. New fellows will be eligible to use the credentials FAAN (fellow of the American Academy of Nursing) after their induction in October.
