Newswise — SEATTLE – (Oct. 5, 2017) – Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) announced today that Kathleen Shannon Dorcy, PhD, RN, Director, Clinical Nursing Research, Education and Practice will be inducted as a Fellow by the American Academy of Nursing this weekend. This is the first time in SCCA’s history that a nurse has achieved Fellow – American Academy of Nursing status, or FAAN.

“Kathleen has dedicated her career to advancing the practice standards that are critical for the delivery of excellent nursing care throughout the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance,” said Norm Hubbard, Executive Vice President of Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. Shannon Dorcy joins the ranks of nearly 2,400 internationally recognized FAAN nursing leaders representing all 50 states, the District of Columbia and 24 countries. She is one of 171 new fellows who will be inducted on Saturday, October 7 at the American Academy of Nursing’s 2017 Annual Policy Conference which began today in Washington, D.C.

Invitation to participate in FAAN reflects recognition of individual achievements in the nursing profession in education, management, practice and research. Upon selection and achievement of FAAN, Fellows contribute time and talent to the American Academy of Nursing to transform health policy and practice through nursing knowledge. Shannon Dorcy plans to dedicate time and energy to the reduction of health care disparities.  Shannon Dorcy attributes her selection to the Academy to mentoring and support she received from others across the continuum of her practice. “My career accomplishments have not been realized alone. My family, my colleagues and students have all contributed greatly to my professional career success,” said Shannon Dorcy.  

Shannon Dorcy currently holds three professional titles: Director of Clinical Nursing Research Education and Practice for Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, Staff Scientist at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (“Fred Hutch”), and Senior Lecturer at the University of Washington School of Nursing in Tacoma, where she has taught for the past 25 years.

Shannon Dorcy joined SCCA Alliance Partner Fred Hutch as a Research Nurse on the bone marrow transplant team in 1989, where she worked with Dr. Fred Appelbaum. "I have had the pleasure of working closely with Kathleen and watching her excel at every level, from helping me run my clinical trials, to developing her own independent research and ultimately leading other nurses to create their…
