Janice Smolowitz, DNP, EdD and Karen Desjardins, DNP, faculty members were elected to the National Academies of Practice, Nursing. The National Academies of Practice is a nonprofit professional organization composed of elected, distinguished representatives from ten different health professions. The central purpose of NAP is to advise public policy makers on health care issues, using NAP’s unique perspective — that of expert practitioners and scholars joined in interdisciplinary dialogue. It is the only interdisciplinary group of health care practitioners dedicated to these issues. Dr. Smolowitz and Dr. Desjardins will be inducted in March.
