King's academic to join STTI's nurse research 'hall of fame'

  • Comment

A leading nursing academic from King’s College London is to be recognised for her contribution to research by the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau.

STTI – the second largest nursing organisation in the world – will induct 19 nursing academics into its international nurse researcher “hall of fame”.

“The cumulative research achievements of these 19 honorees has been nothing short of life changing”

Cathy Catrambone

The hall of fame was created in 2010 to recognise nurse researchers who have “achieved significant and sustained” national or international recognition and whose research has “improved the profession and the people it serves”.

Among those joining it this year is Anne-Marie Rafferty, professor of nursing policy at the Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery. She will be inducted into the hall of fame at STTI’s international nursing research congress, which is taking place in Cape Town, South Africa, from 21-25 July.

Other inductees on this year’s list include representatives from Canada, Lebanon, South Africa, Taiwan, and the US.

Their research projects will be shared through STTI’s Virginia Henderson Global Nursing e-repository, enabling nurses everywhere to “benefit from their discoveries and insights”.

STTI president Cathy Catrambone said: “The cumulative research achievements of these 19 honorees has been nothing short of life changing.

“We celebrate their achievements in advancing world health, and I offer my personal congratulations,” she said. “I look forward to learning and sharing more about their contributions.”

STTI is a not-for-profit organisation set up in 1922 to advance world health and celebrate nursing excellence.

It has more than 135,000 active members in more than 90 countries and roughly 500 “chapters” at higher education institutions throughout the world, including the UK.

Members – who are invited to join – include practicing nurses, educators, researchers, policymakers and others.
