The American Academy of Nursing has nominated Dr. Dale Allison,
HPU professor of nursing, to become a fellow of the national
organization. She will be inducted as a new fellow at the Academy’s
30th annual meeting, Nov. 15 in San Diego, Calif.
Allison is one of 82 nursing professionals nationwide—and
the only one in Hawai‘i—selected for fellowship this
year. Fellows consist of nursing leaders who are educators, researchers,
entrepreneurs, and association executives. One of the criterion
for Academy membership is recognition by one’s peers of
having made outstanding contributions to nursing over and above
those which are required in one’s position of employment.
