American Academy of Nursing inducts Dr. Kevin Buettner

Dr. Kevin Buettner, center, was recently inducted into the American Academy of Nursing Fellows.

UND’s very own Dr. Kevin Buettner, PhD, CRNA, FAANA was recently inducted into the 2023 Class of New Fellows by the American Academy of Nursing.

The 2023 Class of Fellows represents nursing’s positive impact through representation in various roles and settings, from governmental positions to executive and entrepreneurial leadership in practice, non-profits, and academia.

Through a rigorous and competitive application process, the Academy’s Fellow Selection Committee, which is comprised of elected and appointed Fellows, reviewed nearly 400 applications, ultimately selecting the 2023 Fellows based on their contributions to advance the public’s health.

The newest Fellows, and largest class, represent 40 states, the District of Columbia, and 13 countries. In welcoming these Fellows, the Academy will be comprised of more than 3,000 leaders who are experts in policy, research, administration, practice, and academia that champion health and wellness, locally and globally.

Induction into the Academy is a significant milestone in which past and current accomplishments are honored by their colleagues within and outside the profession.

We applaud Kevin not only for this prestigious honor but also for his continual commitment and dedication to the nursing profession.
