Victoria Erickson, Ph.D., PNP-BC, associate professor and MS/DNP program director at the University of Colorado College of Nursing, was recently inducted as a Fellow of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (FAANP).

"Dr. Erickson was recognized for her accomplishments in nursing care and education as well as for her state and national leadership in health care and policy," said Patricia Moritz, Ph.D., FAAN, dean of the College of Nursing. "Vicki is clearly known for her continued excellence in nursing, primary care and mentoring others."

The FAANP program was established in 2000 to recognize nurse practitioner leaders who have made outstanding contributions to health care through nurse practitioner clinical practice, research, education or policy. Priority initiatives of FAANP are the development of leadership and mentorship programs for nurse practitioners and nurse practitioner students.
