Book featuring nursing students and faculty nominated for award
A book featuring the Harding University Carr College of Nursing faculty and students was nominated for the Capstone International Nursing Book Award by Sigma Theta Tau International to be presented at their convention in October.
The book, “Giving Through Teaching: How Nurse Educators Are Changing the World,” features assistant professors Janice Bingham and Karen Kelley, and photos of students and faculty are included in the book as well. National League for Nursing president and Harding College of Nursing dean Dr. Cathleen Shultz served as an editor with Drs. Joyce Fitzpatrick and Tonia Aiken. The three leading nurse educators compiled details from the personal and professional experiences of more than 100 colleagues for the book. Shultz also wrote a chapter specifically regarding the work in the College of Nursing at Harding.
The book, released by the NLN, represents the first time that the global initiatives of nurse educators have been published in one collection.
The Capstone International Nursing Book Award is given to recognize an outstanding book written for nurses and nurse educators. Award nominations were open to publishers, authors and readers to be decided upon by a panel of judges. The winner will be honored at the 41st Biennial Convention in Grapevine, Texas, on Oct. 29, 2011.
