UCalgary Nursing dean Dr. Sandra Davidson, PhD, will be inducted into the 2021 class of Fellows of the Canadian Academy of Nursing, the Canadian Association of Nurses (CNA) announced June 17.  

The academy, which was set up in 2019 to commemorate the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife, is the first pan-Canadian organization dedicated to identifying, educating, supporting and celebrating nursing leaders across all the regulated categories and domains of practice. Appointees must demonstrate substantial contributions and sustained impact to nursing.  

“To be nominated by two former presidents of the CNA (Claire Betker, MN'91 and Barb Shellian, MN'83, BN'79) who are also UCalgary Nursing alumni, is a huge honour, " says Davidson. "It was very kind of them both and makes me proud."

Davidson will be inducted at a ceremony in October. Read more about this year's Fellows.
