BUFFALO, N.Y. – University at Buffalo School of Nursing faculty members Nancy Campbell-Heider and Carla Jungquist have been named to the prestigious 2016 class of American Academy of Nursing (AAN) fellows.

AAN fellows are recognized for their extraordinary nursing careers, and are selected for their contributions to nursing and health care, and their influence on health policy and the health and well-being of patients.

Campbell-Heider and Jungquist will be honored with the 164-member class at the AAN’s annual policy conference Oct. 20-22 in Washington, D.C.

The additions of Campbell-Heider and Jungquist bring the number of current UB School of Nursing faculty who are AAN fellows to five. There are also six emeritus nursing faculty members who hold this honor.

“Induction as an AAN fellow marks a highpoint in the career of nursing leaders and exemplifies the caliber of our faculty and their accomplishments as nursing professionals,” says Marsha Lewis, PhD, professor and dean of the UB School of Nursing.

Campbell-Heider, PhD, is an associate professor and chair of the Department of Family, Community and Health Systems Sciences in the UB School of Nursing. Her research focuses on high-risk teenage behaviors, especially those related to addiction, and developing innovative educational programs for nurses.

In 2006, she revamped the UB Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) program to include a focus on addiction in primary care, the first in the nation to prepare FNPs to sit for the certification exam in both family health and advanced practice addictions nursing.

Also an adjunct professor of dental medicine, Campbell-Heider is the project director for a $1.1 million grant to enhance the understanding of oral-systemic health among nurses through education and collaborative practice with dental professionals.

Through her career, she has amassed more than 45 publications and 24 grants totaling nearly $5 million in funding. She is also a fellow in both the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners and the International Nurses Society on Addictions, a member of the editorial board for the Journal of Addictions Nursing and a recipient of the 2010 SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching.

Campbell-Heider received a doctoral degree in nursing and a master’s degree in clinical family health nursing from the University of Rochester, and a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Winona State College.

Jungquist, PhD, is an assistant professor in the UB School of Nursing with more than 30 years of clinical experience, including 10 years in diagnosing and treating patients with chronic pain conditions.

Jungquist’s research interests center on the interaction of pain and sleep. She maintains a clinical practice at the Thompson Health Sleep Disorders Center, which evaluates and treats patients for all types of sleep disorders. She also serves on the American Society for Pain Management Nursing’s expert consensus panel charged with writing clinical practice guidelines for monitoring patients at risk of opioid-induced respiratory depression.

An expert in the delivery of cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia, Jungquist has co-authored “Cognitive Behavioral Treatment of Insomnia: A Session-by-Session Guide,” which has been published in English and Spanish, and will be published soon Korean, Chinese and Italian.

Jungquist holds a doctorate in health practice research and a master’s degree in nursing from the University of Rochester, and a bachelor’s degree in nursing from the College at Brockport, SUNY.
