Two nursing professors have been selected as fellows of the American Academy of Nursing for their contributions to the nursing profession.
Judy LeFlore, a professor in the College of Nursing, and Jeannette Crenshaw, a clinical assistant professor who teaches in the college’s online program, will be honored along with 174 other fellows from around the world at the Academy’s 39th annual meeting and conference this fall in Washington D.C.
Dr. LeFlore is director of pediatric, acute care pediatric, and neonatal nurse practitioner programs. She has garnered national attention in recent years for her leadership in using simulation and game-based technology in teaching.
Dr. Crenshaw is an expert in evidence-based maternity practices, preoperative fasting practices, and administrative practices. In 2010 she led a unique study using video-ethnography and interactive analysis to improve immediate skin-to-skin care and breastfeeding rates. Collaborating with experts from the U.S. and Sweden, she improved skin-to-skin care during cesarean surgery by 25 percent.
