Burnes Bolton to Receive National Nursing Award

Linda Burnes Bolton, DrPH, RN, FAAN

Linda Burnes Bolton, DrPH, RN, FAAN, is one of five recognized nationally by the American Academy of Nursing for a distinguished career in nursing and healthcare.

The academy's highest honor, which comes with the special designation of "Living Legend," will be awarded at a ceremony in Washington on Oct. 20.

"It is an honor to receive Living Legend recognition from my colleagues," said Burnes Bolton. "I stand on the shoulders of nurses in science, academia, practice and community that have contributed to improving health and healthcare across the world."

Added academy President Bobbie Berkowitz, PhD, RN, NEA-BC, FAAN: "We are thrilled to designate these incredibly deserving individuals as Academy Living Legends for the many contributions they have made to the nursing profession and healthcare. Each of them embodies excellence, leadership and enduring commitment to promoting the health of people."

Last month, Burnes Bolton announced her retirement as health system chief nursing executive, vice president for Nursing and chief nursing officer.

Once her position has been filled, Burnes Bolton will begin serving in the new position of chief health equity officer. In her new role, she will examine disparities in healthcare, a topic that has garnered increasing attention from local, state and national health organizations.
