Dr. Feeg is part of a 23-person inductee class representing six different countries (Australia, Canada, Finland, Taiwan, the United Kingdom and the United States). The Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI), will induct the honorees as part of STTI's annual international nursing research congress, which attracts nearly 1,000 nurse researchers, students, clinicians, and other healthcare leaders. STTI honorees are recognized for their lifetime achievements in nursing, their contributions to research, and for mentoring future nurse researchers.
"Congratulations to these 23 individuals for their incredible combined contribution to global health and the future of nursing," said STTI President Cathy Catrambone, Ph.D., R.N., F.A.A.N. "I look forward to learning more about their personal stories and achievements and to seeing how their work inspires other researchers."
With a bachelor's degree from Villanova University, a master's degree from New York University, and a Ph.D. from Penn State University, Dr. Feeg has been a nurse educator for more than 35 years. She served as editor of Pediatric Nursing for 25 years, and her ongoing research focuses on children and families, with an emphasis on pediatric palliative care. She is also a past member of the board of directors for Health Services for Children with Special Needs in Washington, D.C. and was the American Academy of Nursing Senior Nurse Scholar-in-Residence at the Institute of Medicine (IOM) in 2005. Dr. Feeg is the author of two review books and has also written more than 150 book chapters, research articles and editorials.
"I am honored to have received this recognition," said Dr. Feeg. "What means the most, though, is the recognition of my mentoring activities, particularly doctoral students, many of whom are carrying on my research in nursing and my interest in pediatric palliative care."
