Faculty Honors

Dr. Ratchneewan Ross was honored by the Transcultural Nursing Society with induction as a Transcultural Nursing Scholar. The purpose of the Transcultural Scholars is to recognize persons who have demonstrated and documented exemplary scholarship by advancing transcultural nursing and health care research, education, practice, and/or administration within regional, national, or global contexts.

Dr. Kate Adelstein was accepted into the prestigious and highly competitive Harvard Workshop on Research Methods in Supportive Oncology for early-career researchers which will be held January 22-27, 2023. The 6-day workshop will provide an overview of fundamental methods, such as study designs, qualitative and survey methods, and approaches to data analysis in supportive oncology research. Over the course of the workshop, participants will write a complete study protocol under the direct mentorship of expert faculty in the field of supportive oncology. Participants will continue to receive assistance after the workshop from their workshop mentors to help in the implementation of their studies at their home institutions. The workshop will be virtual, but there will be optional in-person networking activities in Boston for which the program will cover travel and provide a $1,000 stipend for lodging.

Dr. Paul Clark received the Journal of Emergency Nursing Reviewer of the Year Award at the Emergency Nurses Association national meeting in Denver, CO.

Ph.D. Student Accomplishments

Three of our Ph.D. students represented the school extremely well as participants in the campus-wide Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition which is part of a larger international competition. In this research communication competition, students had three minutes to present a compelling oration on their research and its significance with only one slide and no notes. The 3MT challenges students to consolidate their ideas and research so they can be presented concisely to a non-specialist audience.
