Associate Professor Lisa Lindley has been named to the American Academy of Nursing’s 2019 class of new fellows.
Lindley teaches quantitative methodology and health care economics courses in the graduate nursing program. Her research focuses on health care systems and policy interventions that promote quality accessible hospice care for children and their families. She has expertise in advanced statistical techniques, data management, and claims-based data. She has received a predoctoral fellowship, career development award, and research project grant from the National Institutes of Health and a dissertation award from the US Department of Health and Human Services Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, and she is a fellow in Palliative Care Nursing.
She is also an active member of the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association and Pediatric Palliative Care Special Interest Group. She received her doctoral degree in nursing from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a master’s degree in business from the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
“Dr. Lindley is well deserving of this prestigious international recognition,” said Victoria Niederhauser, dean of the College of Nursing, “Her groundbreaking research in end-of-life and hospice care for children is—and will continue—making an enormous impact on these families during a very devastating time.”
Lindley joins Niederhauser as well as Lora Beebe, Nan Gaylord, Roberta Lavin, Carole Myers, Ruth Lopez, Sandra Thomas, and Tami Wyatt as fellows of the academy.
The academy is currently made up of more than 2,600 nurse leaders in education, management, practice, policy, and research who have been recognized for their extraordinary contributions to nursing and health care.
