Frontier Nursing University (FNU) president Dr. Susan Stone, DNSc, CNM, FACNM, FAAN, was recently inducted into the National Academy of Medicine, one of only two nurses out of the 85 new inductees and the only inductee from Kentucky.
Being elected into the Academy is one of the highest honors in the field of health and medicine. It aims to recognize individuals who have demonstrated outstanding professional achievement and commitment to service.
Dr. Stone’s membership was accepted due to her distinguished professional achievement in the fields of medicine and health, and her continued involvement in healthcare issues including disease prevention, education, and research. Her election recognizes Dr. Stone’s achievement in opening the door for more than 6,000 nurses to graduate and positively impact the accessibility of quality health care for rural families across the United States.
Dr. Stone tells frontier.edu, “The National Academy of Medicine offers an incredible opportunity to work collaboratively with leaders from a wide range of medical professions and disciplines. It is a tremendous honor to join this organization which is so deeply committed to improving health care.”
Dr. Stone is also a leader in developing strategies to increase the quality and capacity of midwifery and advanced practice nursing with a specific goal of improving health care for families. Since being appointed president of FNU, Dr. Stone has led the transition from a community-based school of nurse-midwifery offering a basic certificate program to an accredited university offering masters and doctoral degrees. Dr. Stone also serves as President of the American College of Nurse-Midwives.
