San Antonio, TX — Methodist Healthcare is pleased to announce Chief Nurse Executive Jane McCurley has been named a 2021 inductee into the American Organization for Nursing Leadership (AONL) fellow designation program. Ten nurse leaders across the country were selected as part of this year’s class of fellows. McCurley is the first person from Methodist Healthcare to earn this prestigious honor.
McCurley was recently named Chief Nurse Executive of Methodist Healthcare after serving as Chief Nursing Officer at Methodist Hospital. She has been a nurse for 41 years and has always been a passionate advocate for the profession of nursing.
“I want to be remembered for being a Nurse Executive who led each day with passion and advocacy for the profession of nursing,” said Jane McCurley, Chief Nurse Executive at Methodist Healthcare. “I want to be remembered for my commitment to the development of others who will lead our future and make a significant impact on the lives they touch.”
McCurley works to provide a strong voice on behalf of nurses and patients. She has served on several committees, most recently the AONL Political Action Committee, the Texas Hospital Association Education Committee, and Methodist Healthcare’s Community Board Quality and Safety Committee. She has also held positions in several organizations including the President-elect of the Texas Organization of Nurse Executives and Co-chair of the Middle Tennessee Organization of Nurse Executives. McCurley assumed the role of President of Texas Organization for Nursing Leadership in September of last year. Her leadership extends into the community as well, having served as a member on the Texas Prevention of Child Abuse Board and the Pflugerville Education Foundation Board.
The AONL fellow inductees will be honored at the AONL annual conference in July.
