The honor of Fellow is the most prestigious recognition

only seventy-nine Fellows in the country.
Dr. Jannone has been committed to school nursing for over
twenty-five years, first as a school nurse then as a school nurse educator. She
has contributed to school nursing by being a tireless advocate for school
nurses by working with legislation for school age children on both a state and
Dr. Jannone also contributed to school nursing
internationally. She hosted the School Nurse International Conference at
Monmouth University in 2009. In the summer of 2011, Dr. Jannone worked with the
Hong Kong School Nurses Association in Hong Kong and taught school nurse workshops
at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University there. She is currently working with a
group of nurse educators from Asia to establish a regional school nurse program
in the Hong Kong Area.
Dr. Jannone has conducted research in school nursing and
has published her findings in many publications including the Journal of School
Nursing. She opened the School Nurse Program at the Marjorie K. Unterberg
School of Nursing and Health Studies at Monmouth University in 2000. She
currently teaches in both the graduate nursing and undergraduate nursing and
health studies programs, while she coordinates the school nurse program and
serves as a Director of the Masters in Science of Nursing Program.
