Dr. Joy Elwell Made Fellow of American Academy of Nurse Practitioners PDF Print E-mail
Written by Staff

July 6, 2011:  Joy Elwell, DNP, FNP-BC, was made a Fellow of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners on June 24 in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the national convention of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP).  Dr. Elwell is the parish nurse practitioner for the Village Lutheran Church in Bronxville.

The Fellows of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (FAANP) program was established by the AANP in 2000 to recognize nurse practitioner leaders who have made outstanding contributions to health care through nurse practitioner (NP) clinical practice, research, education, or policy and to provide a forum through which to extend and enhance such efforts.  Priority initiatives of FAANP are the development of leadership and mentorship programs for nurse practitioners and nurse practitioner students.

Through the first decade of the program, 255 NPs have been honored by the title "Fellow," and only 13 NPs come from New York.  Fifty NPs will be inducted from across the nation this year.  When asked why so few Fellows hail from New York, Dr. Elwell responded, "Actually, there are another 5 more from NY this year, so I think that NY is well represented. ... Additionally, you have to be nominated by an existing Fellow who can only nominate one person per year. ... I am so grateful to Michael Ackerman, DNS, ANP, FAANP, who nominated me and to Jane Tuttle, PhD, PNP, FAANP, who co-nominated me."

NPs are licensed and registered professional nurses who receive advanced graduate education and clinical training.  In New York, in addition to diagnosing and treating common, as well as complex, medical conditions of individuals of all ages, NPs can prescribe medications and admit patients to the hospital.

Nurse practitioners have been providing quality care for patients since 1965.  Today, there are over 150,000 NPs nationwide practicing in a variety of settings, such as employee health centers, universities, student health centers, school health clinics, nursing homes, hospitals, clinics, and private offices.  Wherever health care may be given, nurse practitioners may be found.

Highlights of Dr. Elwell's nomination included her tireless work to eliminate barriers to nurse practitioner practice and increase access to health care in New York, where she has been instrumental in changing legislation at the state level that is more favorable to NPs.

Dr. Elwell designed and directed a college primary care center at Bronxville's Concordia College and owns and operates an independent NP-run primary care practice in Scarsdale called Joy Elwell--FNP, LLC.  She was recognized in 2007 as "NP of the Year" by The Nurse Practitioner Association NYS and is a past president of that association.

Elwell currently teaches NPs and midwifery students at the Frontier School of Midwifery and Family Nursing in Hyden, KY.  She lives in Eastchester with her husband, Tim, and their 3 children.
