The Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International's (STTI) has announced this year's inductees into the International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame
Created in 2010, the International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame recognizes nurse researchers who have achieved significant and sustained national or international recognition and whose research has improved the profession and the people it serves.
The induction ceremony will take place at STTI's 24th International Nursing Research Congress to be held July 22-26 in Prague, Czech Republic. The award presentation is sponsored by Wiley-Blackwell.
The inductees for 2013 come from six countries and 11 U.S. states, according to STTI President Suzanne Prevost, PhD, RN, COI, adding their research projects will be shared through the web-based Virginia Henderson International Nursing Library "so that nurses everywhere can benefit from their discoveries and insights into patient outcomes, healthcare policies, and much more."
Two of this year's inductees are editors of Wiley-Blackwell publications, namely Susan Gennaro, DSN, RN, FAAN, editor of the Journal of Nursing Scholarship; and Sally Wai Chi Chan, PhD, RN, BSc, MSc, editor of the Journal of Nursing Interventions. Both are "outstanding editors and leaders in the field," says Griselda Campbell, associate director of nursing publishing. Gannaro is Dean and Professor, Boston College, William F. Connell School of Nursing. Chan is Professor and Head, Alice Lee Centre for Nursing Studies, National University of Singapore.
