The American Nurses Association will induct six registered nurses into its Hall of Fame June 16 at its biennial House of Delegates meeting, an honor recognizing a lifelong commitment to nursing and impact on health and/or social history of the United States.
The 2012 ANA Hall of Fame inductees are
RADM Faye Glenn Abdellah; Josephine A. Dolan; Eleanor C. Lambertsen; Captain Mary Lee Mills; Margaret D. Sovie; and Russell E. Tranbarger.
ANA established the nursing Hall of Fame in 1976, inducting 15 charter members. Since
then, 83 nurses total have been inducted, including the six this year. Inductions occur every two
years at the ANA House of Delegates meeting.
