The American Academy of Nursing has inducted Colonel (Ret.) Stephanie A. Marshall, RN, MSN, as a Fellow during the Academy’s recent 41th annual meeting in Washington, D.C.  Assistant Professor Marshall is the Director of Community Partnerships at the UH Mānoa School of Nursing and Dental Hygiene.

Marshall is responsible for building and managing innovative and strategic academic practice initiatives across the public and private sectors. She led the effort to establish a successful Veterans Affairs (VA) Nursing Academy (VANA) partnership of UHM Nursing, Pacific Islands VA Health System and Tripler Army Medical Center, the first VANA to unite the Department of Defense and the VA at the regional level.

Prior to her retirement from the Army Nurse Corps, Marshall had a distinguished military career of 32 years cumulative as Deputy Commander for Nursing at Tripler Army Medical Center, and interim Hospital Commander. An outstanding mentor to countless Army Nurses, she was a key figure in shaping future leaders of the Army Nurse Corps. She played a vital role in the redesign of combat medical training to ensure skilled medical intervention for soldiers on the battlefield.  Marshall established an international network for nursing and led the nursing efforts in annual medical conferences in the Asia Pacific region.

She is a member of the American Organization of Nurse Executives, Oncology Nursing Society, Sigma Theta Tau and American College of Health Executives. She has received numerous honors through the years, including the prestigious Anita Newcomb McGee Award as the Outstanding Army Nurse of the Year and the Duane D. Walker Nurse Leadership Award from the Hawai‘i Chapter of the American Organization of Nurse Executives.

Marshall received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Duquesne University and Master of Science in Nursing from the University of California, San Francisco. She is a graduate of the U.S. Army War College and the Wharton Fellows Program for Nurse Executives in Health Care Management.

Marshall joins other UH Mānoa Nursing faculty members as Academy Fellows.  They are Dean Mary G. Boland, DrPH, RN, FAAN; Associate Professor Maureen Shannon, CNM, FNP, PHD, FAAN, FACNM; and Associate Professor Kristine Qureshi, PhD, RN, FAAN, CEN, APHN-BC.

“The body of Stephanie’s work in leadership is extensive. Her career trajectory includes positions in direct care, executive leadership and faculty. As demonstrated by the impact of her leadership in practice, Stephanie is visionary in her efforts to create a bright future for nursing,” said Dean Boland. “She is never content with the status quo and strives always to challenge those around her to move forward. She is an outstanding nursing leader whose distinguished career represents the ideals of the AAN and our Fellows.”

The Academy is composed of more than 2,000 nurse leaders in education, management, practice, policy and research. The Academy Fellows include hospital and government administrators, college deans and renowned scientific researchers. With this new class, Fellows will represent all 50 states, the District of Columbia and 19 countries. Selection criteria include evidence of significant contributions to nursing and health care, and sponsorship by two current Academy Fellows. Applicants are reviewed by a panel comprised of elected and appointed Fellows, and selection is based, in part, on the extent the nominee’s nursing careers influenced health policies and the health and well-being of all. New Fellows are eligible to use the credentials FAAN (Fellow of the American Academy of Nursing) after their induction.
