Nursing professor Mallie Kozy has been selected as one of four participants from around the nation for the 2017 American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) Faculty Policy Intensive program. The 2017 cohort consists of nursing faculty members selected from a national pool of applicants, to participate in a three day intensive experience to enhance knowledge of policy and advocacy. Kozy and her colleagues were chosen by AACN’s Health Policy Advisory Council from a highly competitive pool of applicants based on their past achievements and future interests in alignment with AACN’s 2017-2018 Federal Policy Agenda priority areas— workforce, research, higher education, and models of care. The end goal is for participants to strengthen relationships necessary to advance policy within federal departments and agencies.
Now in its fifth year, the FPI is a three-day immersion program designed for faculty at AACN member schools who are interested in elevating their role in shaping health policy. The FPI will be held this fall and will coincide with the AACN fall semi-annual meeting. These faculty members will have the unique opportunity to enhance their existing knowledge of policy and advocacy through sessions, panel discussions, and workshops that will strengthen their ability to engage in the dynamic relationships necessary to advance policy within federal departments and agencies, Congress, national organizations, and as individual advocates.
Kozy joined the UP nursing faculty in 2016. She earned her Ph.D. in nursing from Duquesne University in Pittsburg in 2007, and earned an M.S.N. at Medical Collee of Ohio (now University of Toledo) in 1994. She served as professor and dean of Linfield-Good Samaritan School of Nursing from 2013 to 2016, and was as associate professor and chair of undergraduate nursing studies at Lourdes College, Sylvania, Ohio from 2007-2013. She is a registered nurse through the Oregon State Board of Nursing and the State of Ohio Board of Nursing.
