We also congratulate inductee Mary Beth Bigley, DrPH, MSN, APRN, FAAN, a leader in shaping federal policies affecting APRNs as the director of the Division of Nursing and Public Health in the Health Resources and Services Administration’s Bureau of Health Workforce.

“These nursing leaders will continue to transform policy and practice to the benefit of our nation’s children and their families, and mentor the next generation of pediatric-focused APRNs,” said President Cathy Haut, DNP, CPNP-AC, CPNP-PC, CCRN.
