For the second consecutive year, ANA President Pamela F. Cipriano, PhD, RN, NEA-BC, FAAN, has been named one of Modern Healthcare’s “100 Most Influential People in Healthcare.” This awards and recognition program honors individuals in health care who are deemed by their peers and an expert panel to be the most influential individuals in the field. In addition to her appearance on last year’s “Most Influential” list, Dr. Cipriano has also been recognized as one of Modern Healthcare’s “Top 25 Women in Healthcare.”
In the past year, Dr. Cipriano has spoken about putting more nurses in leadership roles and supporting the Department of Veterans Affairs’ efforts to provide direct care to veterans by allowing APRNs to practice to the full extent of their education and training.
The “100 Most Influential People in Healthcare” honorees come from all sectors of health care, including hospitals, health systems, physician organizations, insurance, government, vendors and suppliers, trade and professional organizations, and patients' rights groups. Dr. Cipriano and fellow honorees are currently highlighted in the August 22 print edition of Modern Healthcare and online at ModernHealthcare.com.
