Fourth NAHN Members to be Inducted as Fellows of the American Academy of Nursing
Congratulations NAHN Member Rosa M. Gonzalez-Guarda!

Washington, DC (September 15, 2014) — It truly has been an exceptional year for NAHN members, with four NAHN members to be inducted as Fellow to the American Academy of Nursing (AAN) in October 2014. Rosa M. Gonzalez-Guarda, PhD, MPH, RN, CPH is the fourth NAHN member to be invited to become a FAAN this year.

Rosa has expertise in community-based prevention and intimate partner violence (IPV), HIV and other sexually transmitted infections, and mental health among Hispanics and other vulnerable populations. Her research has developed a conceptual understanding of how intersecting health conditions (i.e., syndemics) contribute to health disparities and to the development of culturally tailored interventions that have an impact on multiple health outcomes. 

She is currently working to address dating violence among Hispanic adolescents, intimate partner homicide in Miami Dade County, and HIV and other sexually transmitted infections among victims of intimate partner violence.

Her research has been funded by the National Institute of Minority Health and Health Disparities, the National Department of Justice, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and Sigma Theta Tau International.

Dr. Gonzalez-Guarda has also led efforts in building a nursing workforce equip to address health disparities. She served on the Institute of Medicine Committee that produced the landmark Future of Nursing report (IOM, 2010), the best-selling report in the history of the IOM, serves on the Steering Committee for the FL Action Coalition for the Future of Nursing, and was appointed by the Secretary of Health and Human Services in 2012 to the National Advisory Council of Nursing Education and Practice (NACNEP).

She is also the Co-Director of Research and Training and Community Engagement for El Centro. Through these roles she designs and oversees activities aimed at building the next generation of health disparities researchers and community capacity for evidenced-based practice.

The American Academy of Nursing's approximately 1,800 Fellows are nursing leaders in education, management, practice and research. They include association executives; university presidents, chancellors and deans; state and federal political appointees; hospital chief executives and vice presidents for nursing; nurse consultants; and researchers and entrepreneurs.

Invitation to Fellowship is more than recognition of one's accomplishments within the nursing profession. Academy Fellows also have a responsibility to contribute their time and energies to the Academy, and to engage with other health care leaders outside the Academy in transforming America's health care system by:

  • Enhancing the quality of health and nursing care;
  • Promoting healthy aging and human development across the life continuum;
  • Reducing health disparities and inequalities;
  • Shaping healthy behaviors and environments;
  • Integrating mental and physical health care; and
  • Strengthening the nursing and health care delivery system, nationally and internationally.

Other current NAHN members who are FAANs include:

  • Amy Barton, PhD, RN, FAAN
