Nurse Dewey Named to National Committee

3Staff Report

On October 5, Bayhealth announced that Clinical Nurse Specialist Angel Dewey, MSN, RN, ACNS-BC, CCRN, CNRN, was selected to serve on the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN) Advanced Practice Institute Program Planning Committee for the 2016 National Teaching Institute (NTI) conference in 2016.

Dewey is one of only eight advanced practice nurses (APNs) chosen to participate in the year-long endeavor, culminating with the conference in May 2016 in New Orleans. As part of her commitment to the planning committee, Dewey is assisting with planning the education portions of the conference.

Dewey was chosen as a volunteer after submitting an application. “I’m honored to have been chosen for such an elite volunteer position,” Dewey said. “As a huge proponent of AACN, this opportunity allows me to give back to a professional nursing organization in a meaningful way where I can ensure the educational needs of APNs across the country are addressed.”

In June, Dewey was sent 200 abstracts to review and score in advance of a July 23-24 trip to Newport Beach, California, where the educational pieces for the conference were chosen. In early 2016, she’ll help moderate the NTI network that allows nurses who are interested in NTI to ask questions. Her one-year commitment to the committee will come to a head in May when she will assist with the conference. She’ll do everything from moderating sessions to assisting individuals with technology.

Dewey believes the knowledge she has gained thus far will help her in her role as a clinical nurse specialist at Bayhealth Kent General. “I have a deeper understanding of issues that APNs across the country are facing. This opportunity has helped me grow as a leader through the collaboration with other APNs across the country.”
