Fellows Program


ATHNA established in 2019 a Fellows program to recognize North American travel health nurses who have made substantial and lasting contributions to ATHNA and to the specialty of travel health nursing through leadership, volunteerism, clinical practice, research, education or publications.

Election to the Fellows program is biennial. The next election will open in December 2021 when applications will be posted on this website. ATHNA members are encouraged to nominate their peers or themselves for this honor. The Board of Directors appoints a three member panel to evaluate the candidates and select the honorees.

Benefits of Fellowship

Fellows of the American Travel Health Nurses Association will receive:

  • Distinction as FATHNA for professional nomenclature
  • Recognition as a FATHNA published on ATHNA website
  • FATHNA pin suitable for use with academic regalia and on uniforms
  • Certificate of fellowship suitable for display


Going forward, ATHNA will welcome the continued and valuable support of our Fellows. From time to time we plan to share specific opportunities for further professional development and networking among this honored group. Fellows are also encouraged to work with ATHNA to grow the program by agreeing to nominate and sponsor new candidates in the future.
