NANDA International welcomed its first class of Fellows during the 2012 40th Anniversary Conference. The NANDA-I Fellows Membership category carries the authority to use the FNI (Fellow of NANDA International) designation, and represents peer acknowledgement of significant professional achievement – both within the area of standardized nursing language and within the nursing profession a whole.
The community of Fellows represents nursing leaders with standardized nursing language expertise in the areas of education, administration, clinical practice, informatics and research. Their professional roles include: association/organization executives; chancellors, deans and university professors; clinical nurse specialists and nurse practitioners; nurse consultants; journal/book editors and authors; researchers and entrepreneurs.
Fellows contribute their time and energies to the organization in a variety of areas, such as mentorship and work on special projects, in order to move forward the goal to provide evidence-based clinical decision support to nurses worldwide. Fellows may also serve the organization as media sources and consultants.
Individuals who would like to be considered as a Fellow in the NANDA International Association must be able to demonstrate membership in NANDA-I for a minimum of ten (10) years. Additionally, you must be able to outline your contributions the NANDA-I association (not merely how you have used NANDA-I in your own work), and how you have advanced the work of the association, either locally, regionally, nationally, or internationally.
