When told that six of the fourteen inductees to the 2012 International Researcher Hall of Fame were Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing faculty, dean Martha Hill, PhD, RN, said, “It demonstrates how exceptional our nursing faculty is,” and called it “an impressive achievement.”
The prestigious International Researcher Hall of Fame award honors nurses whose research has influenced the profession, benefitted patients, and achieved significant professional recognition. “It takes extraordinary dedication, intellect, ingenuity, and perseverance to become a successful researcher, and the bar is set even higher to be inducted into the Hall of Fame,” Hill added.
