|Glenda Lindseth receives highest nursing honor|
The College of Nursing has registered another faculty member as a fellow in the American Academy of Nursing (AAN). Glenda Lindseth has been selected as a Fellow; induction will take place in early November at the 33rd AAN meeting and conference in Miami.
Dr. Lindseth’s selection makes her the fifth AAN Fellow among current faculty members at the College; Loretta Heuer was inducted in the fall of 2005. The AAN is comprised of 1,500 nurse leaders at the top of their profession, having accomplished extraordinary milestones in their nursing careers. Dr. Lindseth said she feels “privileged to have been selected by an elite group of colleagues.”
In addition to the prestige of being chosen, membership opens doors for collaboration with colleagues in many areas including leadership, research and policy. “I believe that belonging to this organization will put me in touch with colleagues who are on the cutting-edge of research and research policy,” adds Dr. Lindseth. AAN members have been identified by their peers to be the best and the brightest in the nursing discipline.
The focus of Dr. Lindseth’s research is to produce holistic, evidenced-based interventions—such as promoting good nutrition and related practices (sleep, physical activity, and others) to prevent nausea and vomiting in pregnant women. Such little-known protective factors were featured in interviews of Dr. Lindseth in Redbook and Prevention magazines.
“Dr. Lindseth exemplifies the mission and goals of the Academy” said Chandice Covington, dean of nursing. “Acceptance into the Academy will be a powerful tribute to her positive thinking, leadership and courage that came together in North Dakota illuminating nursing research for decades to come.”
Dr. Lindseth is the associate dean of research at the College of Nursing and is the principle investigator for the Northern Plains Center for Behavioral Research. The new behavioral research building, funded by the National Institutes of Health, is the first nursing research building of its kind and is scheduled to break ground in August 2006.
