Diane Snow, the nursing administrator at a Texas-based university, was recently inducted as a fellow in the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP). Snow, who has earned both her Master of Science in Nursing and her doctorate, is also a certified psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner and a clinical nurse educator.
Snow was inducted into the prestigious organization late last month at the AANP's 26th annual conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. She has made many contributions to the healthcare industry as a nurse practitioner and nurse educator, specifically in the fields of addiction, substance abuse and violence prevention, co-occurring disorders and trauma recovery. Snow is currently the president of the Foundation for Addictions Nursing and previously served as the head of the International Nurses Society on Addictions.
"Being selected as a fellow of the AANP is truly a highlight of my career and I am honored to receive this recognition," said Snow. "I am very proud that we are graduating nurse practitioners who are providers of excellent mental health care to children and adults in our community and around the country."
