Standing out in a field with millions of practitioners, she now ranks among an elect 1,500 Academy Fellows who are considered leaders in nursing education, administration, research and practice.
“It’s a great honor,” Ravert said in a news release. “Professionally, the fellowship exposes you, and I am glad for the opportunity to interface with forerunners of the nursing profession.”
