Terry Fulmer, NYAM Trustee and Fellow, Named Chair for Prestigious Executive Nurse Fellows Program

NYAM Trustee and Fellow Terry Fulmer, PhD, RN, FAAN, professor and dean of the Bouve College of Health Sciences at Northeastern University, was recently named chair of the prestigious Robert Wood Johnson Executive Nurse Fellows program.

Dr. Fulmer will take over the post from Shirley Chater, the first national advisory committee chair of the program.

“Nobody replaces Shirley Chater,” Dr. Fulmer said. “She is iconic and has created a program that will have an indelible impact on the future of nursing and the history of nursing.”

RWJF Executive Nurse Fellows is a three-year, world-class program that strengthens the leadership capacity of nurses who aspire to shape health care locally and nationally. Each fellow receives coaching, education, and other support to strengthen their ability to lead teams and organizations that are improving health and health care.  More than 200 nurse leaders have participated in the program since it began in 1998.

Executive Nurse Fellows hold senior leadership positions in health services, scientific and academic organizations, public health and community-based organizations or systems, and national professional, governmental, and policy organizations. They continue in their current positions during their fellowships, during which each fellow develops, plans and implements a new initiative to improve health care delivery in her or his community.

“The fellows are the future of the profession,” Dr. Fulmer said. “My commitment is to be there for them, with them, among them” as we transform health care in America.”
