Mary Jo Satusky, a nurse with Resurgens Orthopaedics in Cumming, has been voted president of National Association of Orthopaedic Nurses.

As president, Satusky will further the 6,000-member nonprofit organization’s mission to advance the specialty of orthopaedic nursing through excellence in research, education and nursing practice.

Satusky said in a statement that she was “honored to be chosen to lead” the group.

“I look forward to the challenges and growth opportunities I will encounter in this new role,” she said. “The support I receive from my Resurgens family has enabled me to take this giant leap.”

Satusky’s term with the organization’s executive board will last three years.

She will carry a variety of responsibilities as she holds the positions of president-elect until May 2011, president from May 2011 to May 2012, and immediate past president May 2012 to May 2013.

In these roles, Satusky will represent the association in interactions with other nursing and orthopaedic groups nationally and internationally.

She has been involved with the organization since 1995, having served in various capacities including at the national level as a director on the executive board.

Satusky lives in Cumming with her husband of 34 years, Greg, and their two sons.

She serves patients at the Resurgens Cumming office with Dr. David Covall on Northside Forsyth Drive.
