Shady Grove Adventist Hospital Nurse to Be Inducted into American Academy of Nursing

Rockville, MD – The American Academy of Nursing (AAN) will induct Margaret M. McNeill, PhD, RN, CCRN, CCNS, NE-BC, CIP, registered nurse at Shady Grove Adventist Hospital, to the AAN’s 2013 Class of Fellows. McNeill is one of 172 national nurse leaders to receive this distinction, which is regarded as one of the most prestigious honors in nursing. The induction ceremony will be held at the AAN’s 40th annual meeting in October in Washington, D.C.

“We are honored to have Peggy as a member of the Shady Grove Adventist Hospital team and congratulate her on this prestigious recognition by the Academy,” says John Sackett, president of Shady Grove Adventist Hospital. “This acknowledgement reflects the expert and compassionate care that Peggy provides at our hospital every day.”

Fellows are selected based on their contributions to nursing and health care, as well as sponsorship by two current Academy Fellows. As a Fellow, McNeill will be responsible for working with health-care leaders to transform America’s health-care system through goals such as reducing health disparities and enhancing the quality of health and nursing care.

“This is a tremendous honor, and I look forward to the opportunity to help shape nursing best practices,” says McNeill.

The AAN has more than 2,000 nurse leaders in education management, practice and research. The organization works to advance health policy and practice through the generation, synthesis and dissemination of nursing knowledge.

Shady Grove Adventist Hospital, a not-for-profit, 331-bed acute care facility in Rockville, Md., is part of Adventist HealthCare’s system of complete health-care services. Shady Grove is nationally recognized in cancer care, cardiac and vascular services, orthopedics and joint replacement, and maternity and pediatric care.
