Mary Beck, MU Health Care Chief Nursing Officer and faculty member of the University of Missouri School of Nursing, will be inducted into the 2021 American Organization for Nursing Leadership (AONL) fellow designation program.
The fellow designation recognizes sustained contributions to nursing leadership, commitment to service and influence in shaping health care. Nurse leaders who attain this honor have and will continue to provide their expertise at both regional and national levels through training and mentorship.
“Dr. Beck is the embodiment of how nurses play a leadership role in our health care culture,” said Richard Barohn, MU’s executive vice chancellor for health affairs. “She is committed to ensuring that our nurses are placed in positions of responsibility from the patient care unit to the executive suite. I am proud to call her a colleague.”
The AONL is a national organization of more than 10,000 nurse leaders. Since 1967, the organization has provided professional development, advocacy and research to advance nursing leadership practice and patient care.
AONL will honor Beck and the other nine inductees at its annual conference in July.
