Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing faculty members Linda C. Pugh, PhD, RNC, and Phyllis Sharps, PhD, RN, have been elected Fellows in the American Academy of Nursing.
Dr. Pugh is an associate professor and director of the baccalaureate program at the School of Nursing. She teaches and conducts research on issues related to childbearing and breastfeeding support for women.
Dr. Sharps is an associate professor and director of the school’s master’s program. She teaches and conducts research on intimate partner violence and its effect on women’s physical and mental health, pregnancy outcomes, and infant mortality.
“We are proud to have these expert nurses on our faculty,” says Martha N. Hill, PhD, RN, FAAN, dean of the School of Nursing. “To be named a fellow in the American Academy of Nursing is a prestigious and well-deserved honor for both of them.”
The American Academy of Nursing is an organization of leaders in nursing who have been recognized by their peers for their outstanding contributions to the profession and to health care. Drs. Pugh and Sharps will be formally inducted into the academy during its annual meeting and conference in November, bringing the total number of Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing faculty members who are fellows in the American Academy of Nursing to 15.
