Academy CEO Suzanne Miyamoto, PhD, RN, FAAN, had the opportunity to discuss her career in health policy and the Academy's focus on advancing health equity and championing wellness with Nurse Commander. Read the full interview with the link below.

Suzanne Miyamoto, PhD, RN, FAAN, is the Chief Executive Officer of the American Academy of Nursing. Dr. Miyamoto previously served as Chief Policy Officer of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing and has worked with the National Institutes of Health, The Joint Commission’s Nursing Advisory Council, and the Nursing Community Coalition. Dr. Miyamoto teaches health policy to nursing students at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. She was a 2014 Executive Nurse Fellow at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and was inducted as a Fellow of the American Academy of Nursing in 2015.

Much of Dr. Miyamoto’s career in health policy has focused on emphasizing the nursing voice to policymakers. “Health equity is front and center of the policy work at the Academy. Racial disparities impact public health. The coronavirus pandemic has illuminated persistent challenges based on social determinants of health— where people live and work— that impact access to care and care delivery. This requires addressing the unjust systemic inequities communities face and where substantive change needs to occur.

Tears of 9/11 With the rising of an untamed sun With the heat that summer had left With the promise of a delicate fall September came into town with death toll in hand Twin towers as if the Titanic of New York Designed not to be perished But perished Insanity rejoiced on the souls of diminished Measuring loss and measuring gains Confusion swirled around the created flames Like a house of sands Twin towers crumbled down to the ground Thousands were dead and wounded Thousands were crushed and pounded Thousands that is, human beings Peeled skin hanging from the face Blood and tears Whispered everywhere A man to save his life Jumped from the height of death if worth of try Mourners were allowed to secretly cry Thus, the seduction of slander survived Where ever goes the burden of blame No one was there to stop, no one to defend Such are the children of Adam lost and confused Love and kindness are the subjects of fools Criminals commit guilt free crimes Ignorance and arrogance make the best of rhymes There is blood in the river of Tigris There is no tear left in mothers’ eyes When this world about to be filled with widows and orphans When this world about to have no man and love of a man When compassion is replaced by compulsion When the best is blinded When lying is glorifying And truth is rejected When no human soul could testify But Angels are trusted When this earth yearns for divine style Then Come Prophet, one more time!

Researchers at the University of Tulsa are conducting a study on the link between electronic health record (EHR) design and provider motivation. Nurses and physicians are invited to learn more and participate by following this link to our 20-minute survey: https://utulsapsychology.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0iZi8wFwHtjHhvD?fbclid=IwAR1mb51Pv0dIi_5gygqgT4lrhQophodEEor8wPUNdTU0mgEcICQd3YQRhRA. Respondents will have the chance to win an Amazon Kindle as compensation.

Thank you in advance to all participants and supporters. You can read more about our lab and research by visiting our page here: https://artsandsciences.utulsa.edu/tacl/
Hello all, I'm collecting data from nurses and physicians that work in hospital settings for my dissertation. I research job design and motivation in healthcare, and now I'm writing about how the design of electronic health records (EHR or EMR) affects provider motivation. If you work in a hospital with EHR, you can participate by following this link to a questionnaire on your computer or smartphone. You can even go the extra mile by sharing this link with colleagues or posting it to a Facebook group where other nurses or physicians will see. Thank you for your time and for supporting this important research.

Hey there AAN members! I run a website called CareerVillage.org that crowdsources college and career advice for underserved youth through Q&A with professionals online. Thousands of young people aspire to follow in your footsteps and they’re posting questions about how to do that on our site. Like this question asked by Kirstie in Attleboro, MA: "How easy will it be to find a job in nursing?" While we have more than 15k registered Professionals who volunteer their time to give career advice, we don’t have many nurses, so I thought I’d reach out here to see if anyone would be willing to help us get this question (and others like it!) answered. You can sign up here: http://bit.ly/2oaWe9s and once you do it’ll bring you right to the question I mentioned above. Thank you so much in advance!! If you have any questions at all either post a comment here or send us a note to [email protected]. Hoping to see some of you on CareerVillage.org soon!
