THE ACADEMY OF FORENSIC NURSING
I am honored to serve as the Academy of Forensic Nursing’s president for 2022-2023. As I step into this leadership role, I would like to extend my sincere appreciation to the membership and the Academy's Board of Directors for granting me the opportunity to further develop our organization. I hope you will join me in the work ahead for our continued growth and development of the Academy, as there is much to be done in the year ahead. I look forward to working to the best of my ability in making the organization even stronger.
It’s an exciting time for the Academy as we continue to grow and adapt with additional nursing certifications becoming available in March 2022 and the continuation of our educational webinars. We strive to remain always motivated and responsive to the continued growth and advancement of forensic nursing.
I have twin goals for my presidency: empowerment of our leadership and members to be the best they can be for themselves and the organization, and efficiency in our processes to strengthen the organization and continue working for the benefit of our members.
There are so many ways to be involved. If you are interested in joining our work, we value your input and time. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit goafn.org to view more information on Committees and Special Interest Groups that want to hear your opinions and concerns. Also, please never hesitate to reach out to me with any comments or questions at email@example.com.
I’d like to thank each of you for bringing your expertise to our organization. You have the vision, the knowledge, the wherewithal, and the experience to help us pave our way into the future. You are truly our greatest asset today and tomorrow, and we could not accomplish what we do without your support.
Throughout this year, I ask you to stay engaged, keep us proactive, and help us shape the future of the Academy. My personal respect and thanks goes out to all of you.
