Spring Annual Meeting to Focus on Entrepreneurship for Deans
Send Your Feedback to the Futures
Task Force
“The Dean as Entrepreneur” is the theme of AACN’s Spring Annual Meeting, which
will be held March 22-24 at The Fairmont in Washington, DC.
Noted author and education advocate Tom Vander Ark will present the opening
program on this topic. Mr. Vander Ark is the CEO of Getting Smart, an education
advocacy firm, as well as a partner in Learn Capital, an education venture capital
firm investing in edtech startups. He also is the author of Getting Smart: How Digital
Learning is Changing the World and Smart Cities That Work for Everyone: 7 Keys to
Education and Employment.
A highlight of this Spring Meeting will be the presentation of the first Geraldine
“Polly” Bednash Lectureship Award. This award honors AACN’s previous CEO, who
led the association for 28 years. Award recipients are chosen by the AACN Board of
Directors on the basis of leadership and/or scholarly contributions to interprofessional
education. It is fitting, therefore, that this first award will go to a team from the six
founding members of the Interprofessional Education Collaborative (American
Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine, American Association of Colleges of
Pharmacy, American Dental Education Association, Association of American Medical
Colleges, Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health, and AACN).
The Nurse.com/Gannett Foundation Lectureship Award for Diversity, Inclusion,
and Sustainability in Nursing Education will be presented to Marilyn (Marty) Douglas,
Editor-in-Chief Emerita of the Journal of Transcultural Nursing. Dr. Douglas will present
her thoughts on the challenges that global migration presents to nurses and the need
for a structured and sustainable method of educating all nurses to deliver culturally
competent care.
There will be skill-building breakout sessions on March 21, one day prior to the
meeting. Concurrent sessions will focus on best practices in development, tools for talking
when stakes are high, budgeting for success, media training, and strategic planning. Later,
there will be an orientation for new members, new deans, and prospective members, as
well as a wine-and-cheese social for those in AACN’s New Dean Mentoring Program.
Monday’s agenda (March 23) includes informal breakfast discussions, an important
update from the Futures Task Force, and then the Like-Schools Reports, the Issues
Forum, and the Business Meeting. In the afternoon, members will be able to visit their
representatives on Capitol Hill and attend a reception there.

Jonas Center, Khan Academy, and AACN Announce Plans to
Produce Expanded Healthcare Learning Resources for a Global
The Jonas Center for Nursing and Veterans Healthcare ( Jonas Center), Khan
Academy, and AACN announced the continuation of a groundbreaking partnership to
produce innovative, online healthcare content for a global audience of faculty, students,
practitioners, and consumers. Building on the success of the partnership’s inaugural year,
plans are underway to develop an expansive catalog of healthcare videos that can be used
by nursing students preparing to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination for
Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN®), as well as others interested in learning more about
body systems and a variety of common health concerns.
“Working closely with our partners, the Jonas Center is committed to serving as a
catalyst for sparking innovative approaches to nursing education,” said Darlene Curley,
Executive Director of the Jonas Center. “We are energized by the wealth of learning
resources that have already resulted from this productive collaboration and are looking
forward to adding more world-class content to the web in the coming year.”
In the coming year, videos and practice exam questions will be produced touching on
diseases across major body systems, including the circulatory, endocrine, gastrointestinal,
hematologic, immune, lymphatic, muscular, renal, respiratory, and skeletal systems. This
expanded content was made possible by a $560,000 grant from the Jonas Center. New
videos and questions will be posted on the Khan Academy website as they are produced. “In keeping with our mission of providing free educational resources to a global
audience, we are delighted to build on a growing body of interprofessional tools housed
on Khan Academy’s website through our work with our nursing partners,” said Dr. Rishi
Desai, Program Lead for Medical Partnerships at Khan Academy. “The videos produced
from this collaboration receive more than 12,000 views each day and are consistently
receiving positive reviews from learners.”
Formed in September 2013, the collaboration among the Jonas Center, Khan
Academy, and AACN emerged out of a mutual desire to produce free educational
resources for a new generation of more visual, technology-savvy learners. To achieve
this goal, an international competition was launched to identify content creators
with expertise in using online tools to teach NCLEX-RN content areas, focusing on
cardiovascular, respiratory, and hematology systems. Fourteen individuals were selected
following the competition, including representatives from the disciplines of nursing,
medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, public health, and graduate studies in biological science.
With guidance provided by experts at Khan Academy and a panel of AACN faculty
reviewers, the winning content creators have since developed more than 200 educational
video, several informative articles, and more than 300 practice exam questions that are
now accessible for free at www.khanacademy.org/test-prep/NCLEX-RN.
“Re-envisioning how best to provide healthcare content to today’s student is a
challenge facing all nurse educators,” said Dr. Eileen T. Breslin, President of the American
Association of Colleges of Nursing. “We are delighted to partner with the Jonas Center
and Khan Academy in this work that is pushing the envelope on traditional approaches
to nursing education and exploring how best to use technology to generate strong interest
and enthusiasm for learning.”
To receive regular updates when new videos are released, please log onto Khan
Academy website at www.khanacademy.org.

& Information
with Margaret C. Wilmoth
Margaret C. Wilmoth, PhD, RN, FAAN
Dean and Professor, Georgia State University
Major General, U.S. Army
Margaret Wilmoth is the Inaugural Dean and Professor at
the Byrdine F. Lewis School of Nursing and Health Professions
at Georgia State University. Previously she was Professor of
Nursing at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte. Dr.
Wilmoth also serves as Major General in the United States
Army Reserve, a rank to which she was promoted on December
11, 2014. She is the Deputy Surgeon General for Mobilization,
Readiness, and Army Reserve Affairs in the Office of the Surgeon
General, U.S. Army.
Dr. Wilmoth’s sustained work in the area of sexuality as it intersects with chronic
illness has influenced and complemented the work of others to form the subspecialty
of psychosexual oncology within the field of psychosocial oncology. She has developed
two psychometric measures of sexuality and has award-winning publications stemming
from her research, international collaborations, and student co-authored publications.
Dr. Wilmoth has served on the Gynecologic Cancer Steering Committee of the NIH
and as Quality of Life Liasion to the Radiation Therapy Oncology Group.
A graduate of the University of Maryland (BSN and MS in nursing), Dr. Wilmoth
received her PhD from the University of Pennsylvania and a master’s degree in
strategic studies from the United States Army War College. She is a Fellow of the
American Academy of Nursing and a member of the Order of Military Medical Merit.
1) Congratulations on your recent Senate
confirmation to Major General. What drew
you to a career in the military?
2) What if any obstacles did you encounter
along the way as you rose through the ranks
in the Army?
I was raised in a family where all of
the men had served in the Army for
generations. I was a bit of a tomboy and
loved playing “army” with my brother and
his friends. So that was one influence.
Additionally, three influential women in
my life inspired my passion for nursing,
my mother, my aunt who is a nurse and a
neighbor who had been a nurse in the Army
in WWII. I admired their commitment
to make a difference in the lives of others
and the respect they earned from others for
their knowledge and skills. While I don’t
remember the details, the neighbor’s stories
of being a nurse in the South Pacific during
WWII clearly made an impression on me
and impacted my life. With women’s career
choices at the time being limited-mostly to
teaching, nursing or being a secretary, it was
a natural choice to choose nursing, and more
specifically Army Nursing.
The obstacles I experienced were not
unique to me; they have been experienced
by others and I owe them a debt of gratitude
for their efforts towards ‘breaking the
brass ceiling.’ Barriers occurred at all levels,
some were systematic, others were more
parochial. For example, when I attended
college in the mid-1970’s, women were not
yet allowed to join ROTC, so that avenue
toward becoming an officer was closed to
me. Joining the Army Reserve in 1981, duty
assignments for nurses were limited to more
traditional ones such as Intermediate Care
Ward head nurse, Assistant Chief Nurse
and Chief Nurse. I was drawn to training
and planning of field exercises rather than
the more traditional nursing roles. Retired
Colonel Dr. Dan O’Neal, my first Chief
Nurse, supported my desire to do something
outside of the mainstream. He is a nurse
who overcame barriers towards men in
nursing and in the Army Reserve and
became a role model for me in my Army
Reserve career. He was also my faculty
advisor at the University of Maryland.
Opportunities to command were closed
to nurses until the mid-1990’s. In fact, one
of the first nurses to command in the Army
was Janet Garvey, who commanded an Army
Reserve ground ambulance company during
Desert Shield/Desert Storm. A mentor of
mine, retired Colonel Dr. Catherine Foster,
was among the first nurses selected to attend
the Army War College in residence status.
I owe a debt of gratitude to these women
who paved the road before me and had the
courage to help change Army policy.
I had the good fortune of having many
mentors and senior officers across the Army
Reserve who saw leadership potential in me
and opened the door for me to assume new
roles. While they opened the door, it was
up to me to walk through that door and it
was because I did so, that I am now a Major
General in the U.S. Army Reserve.
3) What were some of your duties as
Assistant for Mobilization and Reserve
Affairs for the Office of the Assistant
Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs?
My job was to ensure that policies
being circulated within the Department of
Defense regarding the health readiness of
the Armed Forces were congruent with the
Reserve Components (RC) (Army, National
Guard, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps)
and to ensure that reserve equities were
considered in the policy-making process.
I collaborated with others in examining
the post-deployment health issues of our
service members, with special emphasis
on those in the Reserve Component, and
in highlighting gaps in health care for the
Reserve Component as these men and
women left active duty and returned to their
civilian employment and to their Reserve
Component duties.
4) How will your responsibilities change
with your promotion to Major General?
Since July 2014, I have been assigned to
the Office of The Surgeon General (OTSG),
U.S.Army, as the Deputy Surgeon General
for Mobilization, Readiness and Army
Reserve Affairs. In this role, I am the senior

10 QUESTIONS continued from page 4
officer representing the Army Reserve in
OTSG with the responsibility of ensuring
that Army Reserve equities are considered
in policies developed within the office. I
am also the senior medical liaison between
the Army Surgeon General and the Chief,
US Army Reserve and I work with the
Defense Health Agency on matters affecting
Army Reserve Component soldier medical
readiness and health care.
5) What advice would you give to nursing
students considering a career in the
I would strongly encourage students to
consider military nursing. One can serve
on active duty or in one of the reserve
components. The opportunities to stretch
and to grow as a leader are limitless and will
add a unique breadth and depth to their
nursing career. If someone truly wants to
develop as a leader, this will happen in the
military in a very intentional way.
6) How did your experience as a Robert
Wood Johnson Health Policy Fellow shape
your perspective on the policy process?
The fellowship experience was invaluable
and it is hard to put in a few words the
many layers of learning and growth
that occurred. I was fortunate to closely
observe the ‘threading of the needle’ as the
passage of the Affordable Care Act was
passed into law. Being able to observe the
delicate negotiation of both the policies
and the politics that took place to move
this important work into law and then the
pivot to implementation was a privilege.
The policy making process is not a straight
forward trajectory and as is often said, “ It is
like making sausage - not always pretty and
usually messy!”
Several lessons that I learned and have
applied since, include the necessity of
building coalitions to drive policy forward,
the importance of strategically messaging/
communicating to a variety of stakeholders
and the critical importance of listening
respectfully to opposing viewpoints.
7) How have you translated your work in
policy to your role in nursing academia?
A dean’s job is very much in the
lane of implementing policy in a highly
political environment. There are numerous
constituencies that a dean must negotiate
and balance against often competing
demands. Leading change in academia is a
unique challenge due to the power of faculty,
especially tenured faculty.
One small example of the work I’ve
led is the effort of the University System
of Georgia (USG) to attract master’s and
doctorally prepared nurses leaving the
uniformed services to join us as faculty in
Georgia. We have initiated the ‘Veteran
Nurse to Educator Fellowship’ that will
assist these individuals in transitioning to
the role of faculty member in any of the
nursing faculties in the USG. These nurses
have both the clinical skills as well as the
leadership preparation that is called for in
the 2010 Institute Of Medicine Report on
The Future of Nursing: Leading Change,
Advancing Health and they have much to
offer academic nursing.
8) What advice do you have for nurse
faculty who are interested in becoming
involved in health policy?
Health policy should not be thought of
as something separate from clinical research,
clinical practice, pedagogy or curriculum
development. There are policy issues within
each and across each. There is ‘micro’ policy
that impacts students and faculty in their
daily work and clinical practice and then
there is more ‘macro’ policy that affects our
practice at the state and federal level. Faculty
need to understand this and highlight this as
they work with students and with each other.
I believe the biggest challenge for faculty
is to get students excited about how nursing
intersects with policy. It continues to fill me
with dismay about the numbers of nurses
who do not know who controls their practice
of nursing within their state.
9) As a leader in the military and nursing
communities, from your experience, what
is the cornerstone to cultivating positive
First, the policy problem has to be clearly
understood by all and the need to change
has to be recognized by those affected. That
is why I have added the 7th “P” of ‘Problem
Identification’ to the 6 P’s of policy change.
Everyone has to be willing to move away
from their entrenched position and come to
a new, negotiated common path forward. In
order for change to occur, leaders must have
those willing to follow.
10) Looking ahead, what are the major
challenges facing the healthcare system
and what is nursing’s role in forward
I believe that nursing and the other
health disciplines are in the vortex of two
large institutions undergoing massive
change-the health care system and higher
education. I’m not sure that all nurse
educators or nurses in the practice arena have
fully grasped this. Nor do I believe that we
have even begun the conversations, much less
the hard work, that is required to ensure the
profession will emerge in a strong position
as leaders within these systems. Thus, more
nurse leaders willing to lead change, and
with the skills to do so, are critically needed.
