A UK nursing professor has described his selection to become a fellow of the American Academy of Nursing (AAN) as a ‘huge honour’.

The University of Huddersfield’s Nick Hardiker is one of 230 nurse leaders from around the world to join the 2020 class of AAN fellows.

The AAN represents nursing leaders in policy, research, administration, practice and academia.

Fellows are selected for their contribution to advancing public health.

Fellowship recognises professor’s work on how nurses use digital information

Professor Hardiker is a professor of nursing and health informatics and associate dean (research and enterprise) in the school of human and health sciences at the university.

His research looks at how nurses can improve their use of information on digital platforms rather than paper-based systems. 

Online information breaks down ‘geographical boundaries’ 

‘We are fortunate to live in the internet age where we can build tools that are able to manage information across geographical boundaries,’ Professor Hardiker said.

He began his career in general nursing in 1987, achieved a doctoral degree in computer science, and has more than 25 years of experience in theoretical and applied research in nursing and health informatics. 

Academy president says new fellows help organisation to grow in strength

The AAN’s president Eileen Sullivan-Marx said she is honoured to welcome the 2020 class of fellows into the academy.

‘As a policy organisation, we strive to improve health and achieve health equity through nursing leadership, innovation and science.

‘Growing the academy’s fellowship bolsters our collective strength.’
