Newark, N.J. -- A Rutgers College of Nursing faculty member was elected as a fellow to the Academy of Emergency Nursing.
Linda Scheetz, assistant professor at the College of Nursing at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, will be among the 13 fellows inducted during the Emergency Nurses Association's (ENA) Scientific Assembly at the Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center in San Antonio, TX on Sept. 16.
The Academy of Emergency Nursing was established by the ENA to honor nurses who have made enduring and substantial contributions to emergency nursing, who advance the profession of emergency nursing, including the health care system in which emergency nursing is delivered, and who provide visionary leadership to the ENA.
"I am thrilled to be inducted with my distinguished colleagues whose contributions to emergency nursing have made a positive and significant impact," said Scheetz, a Monroe, N.Y. resident. "This is an exciting moment for me and my family."
Scheetz has been involved in many national ENA activities including chairing the Outcomes Research Task Force and the TNCC/ENPC Effectiveness Work Group. She was also recently named interim co-editor of The Journal of Emergency Nursing, the official publication of the ENA. Prior to her appointment as interim co-editor, Scheetz was assistant editor.
From its headquarters at Rutgers-Newark, Rutgers College of Nursing offers a broad range of academic programs on all three Rutgers campuses. The college offers a master's program with unique practitioner clinical specialties, and is the first to offer a doctoral (Ph.D) nursing degree in New Jersey.
