Cara Young, PhD, RN, FNP-C, assistant professor, was inducted into the Fellows of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (FAANP).
The new FAANP members will continue the tradition of impacting national and global health through their outstanding contributions. The FAANP program was established in 2000 to recognize nurse practitioner (NP) leaders who have made outstanding contributions to health care through clinical practice, research, education or policy. Fellows of AANP are visionaries and, as such, hold an annual think tank to strategize about the future of NPs and health care. The new Fellows will continue to demonstrate leadership and contribute to the mission of AANP.
