Julie Stewart, associate professor and director of the family nurse practitioner program, has joined 87 of her peers to be inducted into the Fellows of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (FAANP) this year.
The ceremony took place in San Antonio, TX. Stewart and the other new FAANP members received the honor for upholding the tradition of impacting national and global health through their outstanding contributions.
The FAANP program began in 2000 to recognize nurse practitioner leaders who have made outstanding contributions to health care through clinical practice, research, education or policy. Fellows are considered visionaries and, as such, gather for an annual think tank to strategize plans for the future of nurse practitioners and health care.
