BANGOR Amy Cotton, APRN, has been selected for induction into the Fellowship of the American Academy of Nursing. The academy's 1,800 fellows are the nation's most accomplished leaders in education, practice and research within the nursing profession. These fellows are honored for their extraordinary accomplishments in nursing and are among the nation's most highly educated nurses.

According to Lisa Harvey-McPherson, RN, vice president of EMHS Continuum of Care, 'EMHS is proud and honored to have Amy leading our work to improve the quality of care and older adult population health outcomes across our service region. Fellowship status with the American Academy of Nursing highlights Amy's role as a national leader in this important work.'

A native of Hampden, she graduated from Bangor Christian High School and obtained her nursing degrees from the University of Maine and University of Southern Maine. Cotton is currently president of the National Gerontological Nursing Association and is also a fellow of the Maine Gerontological Society and Sigma Theta Tau International's Geriatric Nursing Leadership Academy.

'I am humbled and honored to be recognized for my nursing work to improve healthcare delivery and access for the growing population of older adults here in Maine and across the country,' said Cotton.

She will be inducted in the Fellowship of the American Academy of Nursing on Oct. 13 in Washington, DC. The Academy serves the public and the nursing profession by advancing health policy and practice through the generation, synthesis and dissemination of nursing knowledge.
