Two AACC health administrators receive honors

Beth Batturs of Stevensville, M.S.N., director of nursing at Anne Arundel Community College, received the 2008 Honor a Nurse Recognition Award recently from the National Organization for Associate Degree Nursing Foundation. The foundation developed the award in 2003 to recognize outstanding nurse educators, administrators, practitioners and researchers for their contributions to the organization and the profession.

Linda Murray of Annapolis, M.S., CRNP-Ped., associate professor and assistant director of nursing at Anne Arundel Community College, was one of six U.S. nurses awarded a scholarship to attend the March 2009 Nurse in Washington Internship Program. The scholarship was awarded by the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners. The scholars will work on Capitol Hill March 29-31 to identify legislative, political and economic forces driving health care policy and current changes in delivery.
