Loma Linda University (LLU) School of Nursing professor Jan Nick, PhD, RNC-OB, CNE, ANEF, was recently selected as a fellow by the American Academy of Nursing (AAN). AAN’s fellowship is highly competitive and considered one of the highest honors in the nursing profession.
Nick has been a faculty member of the LLU School of Nursing since 1997, teaching in the areas of obstetrical and neonatal nursing, research, informatics, and evidence-based practice. Her work spans two decades of international work building capacity for nursing education, participating in the development of the first certification exam for nurse educators, assisting a hospital in developing a new nursing program in South America as a Fulbright Scholar, and developing policy with the International Council of Nursing in Geneva.
Nick tells News.LLU.edu, “Being inducted into the Academy is one of external validation of my career activities but also provides me internal validation that my professional activities are in alignment with greater goals in nursing.”
Nick has also been appointed as a member of AAN’s Informatics, Technology and Evidence-Based Practice expert panel thanks to her expertise in this area. To learn more about Jan Nick’s nursing career and tenure as a professor in the LLU School of Nursing, visit here.
