2011-06-21

BINGHAMTON, NY – Ann Fronczek, director of undergraduate programs and faculty member in the Decker School of Nursing at Binghamton University, has been selected to participate in the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) Leadership for Academic Nursing Program.

Admitting only 50 – 60 fellows each year, the program is designed to develop and enhance leadership skills in new and emerging administrators in baccalaureate and graduate nursing programs. The yearlong program provides participants with a focused assessment experience, a range of content and case studies related to successful leadership, and the opportunity to establish networks with mentors and peers. Kicking off with a 5-day seminar in late July, the program addresses multiple important executive leadership topics, numerous assessment experiences, and the opportunity to utilize an experienced mentor.

AACN is the national voice for university and four year-college education programs in nursing. Representing over 640 member schools of nursing at public and private institutions nationwide, AACN's educational, research, governmental advocacy, data collection, publications, and other programs work to establish quality standards for bachelor's- and graduate-degree nursing education, assist deans and directors to implement those standards, influence the nursing profession to improve health care, and promote public support of baccalaureate and graduate nursing education, research, and practice.
