2017 AACN Wharton Fellows

Using a competitive process, 30 academic nursing leaders were selected this year to participate in the AACN-Wharton program, which convened in Philadelphia, PA on August 7-10, 2017. Those selected represent a wide diversity of nursing programs, including large academic health centers, small liberal arts schools, public and private universities, rural and urban-based programs, and faith-based institutions. Offered since 2012 the reach of this program has been broad across the nation and impacting all types of our membership. This class in particular represented 20 states with individuals representing small/ liberal arts Institutions (4), Public Schools without academic health centers (5), private institutions without academic health centers (9), and those members are academic health centers (12).
