NACNS Announcement About Ann Hamric

NACNS is sad to announce the unexpected passing of one of its CNS pioneers, Ann Hamric. She was a mentor, a friend, a colleague, and a teacher. Ann’s impact on the Clinical Nurse Specialist, her contributions to NACNS and to advanced nurse practitioners everywhere cannot be understated.

Ann Hamric was the senior editor of two books on advanced practice nursing used worldwide in nursing education: The Clinical Nurse Specialist in Theory and Practice (which as in its second edition), and Advanced Practice Nursing: An Integrative Approach (which was in its fifth edition). Most NACNS members have read or referenced one of Ann’s book during the course of their careers.
