The American Academy of Nursing is an organization of distinguished leaders in nursing who have been recognized for their outstanding contributions to the profession of nursing and to healthcare. It is my pleasure to inform you that Mary Faut Rodts, MS, MSA, APRN, ONC, Editor of Orthopaedic Nursing, was inducted as a Fellow of the Academy on Saturday, November 14, 2003.


Academy Fellows are recognized nationally and internationally as nursing leaders in education, management, practice, and research. Mary has contributed selflessly to these areas of nursing. Her commitment to excellence in practice and research is evident in her work as Editor of Orthopaedic Nursing. As the Publisher of Orthopaedic Nursing, it has been my privilege and pleasure to work with Mary on the journal.


On behalf of LWW, I congratulate Mary on this milestone achievement in her nursing career and offer our sincere gratitude for her contributions to nursing and Orthopaedic Nursing.
