The American Academy of Nursing named Gina Bryan, a professor at the University of Wisconsin–Madison School of Nursing and a leading state and national policy expert on opioids and addiction, to its 2019 fellows class.
Fellowship in the academy is one of nursing’s highest honors and is reserved for nurses who demonstrate sustained and significant impact on health and wellbeing as well as the profession.
Bryan, a psychiatric advanced practice nurse, directs the School of Nursing’s post-graduate psychiatric nurse certificate program as well as the psychiatric mental health track of the Doctor of Nursing practice degree program. She teaches in both graduate and undergraduate programs at the School of Nursing and in the School of Pharmacy.
