Delia I O'Hara JD, RN-C, FNP-BC, FAANP

In Memoriam (1942-2012)

Delia Iglauer O’Hara, JD, RN-C, FNP, helped to draft and then lobby to pass the Nurse Practice Act for the District of Columbia which defined NP, nurse midwives, and nurse anesthetists as advance practice nurses with expanded practice authority. Moreover, following passage of the Nurse Practice Act, Ms. O’Hara drafted rules and regulations for NP practice, which were adopted by the District of Columbia. Ms. O’Hara has also worked on legal issues such as changing the Pharmacy Act to allow NPs to prescribe Schedule II-V controlled Drugs and obtain State DEA numbers. She served many years on the Board of the Academy, as well as the Board of Nursing in the District of Columbia, and was instrumental in the development of the Academy’s Foundation.
