School of Nursing Professor Cynthia Dougherty,  PhD, ARNP, FAHA, FAAN, will inducted into the Sigma Theta Tau International’s (STTI) International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame, honoring her many contributions to nursing and nursing research. The induction will occur during the 25th International Nursing Research Congress in Hong Kong this July.

Joan Shaver, MN ’70, Dean at the University of Arizona College of Nursing and former faculty member, will also be inducted into the 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. Last year, two School of Nursing faculty members and two alumni were inducted into the hall of fame.

“The combined accomplishments of these 25 honorees are nothing short of world changing,” said STTI President Hester C. Klopper, PhD, MBA, RN, RM, FANSA. “In keeping with the STTI mission to celebrate nursing excellence in scholarship, leadership, and service, I congratulate the 2014 Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame honorees. I look forward to learning more about their contributions and sharing them with our members worldwide.”

The award presentation is sponsored by Wiley-Blackwell.
