Professor honored with Distinguished Nurse Researcher Award
"On Saturday, September 24, Dr. Veronica Feeg was honored with the Distinguished Nurse Researcher Award at the Annual conference of the American Nurses Association of NY. More than 200 Registered Nurses from around the state of New York were in attendance, and the American Nurses Association National President Pamela Cipriano was at hand for the conference," said Toby Bressler, Director of Nursing for Professional Practice Maimonides Medical Center.
"It was an honor to be recognized by the Center for Nursing Research of the Foundation for my work and to join a long list of the previous New York leading nurse researchers who received this award. Over the years, my work has had an impact on children, parents and nursing but more importantly, my work has helped me bring opportunities to the Ph.D. students that I currently guide in their own research development," said Veronica Feeg,
Criteria for the award include:
- Evidence of a coherent research program
- Evidence of leadership in nursing research
- Quality of research
- Contribution to the science and art of nursing and health care
- Dissemination of research to the scientific and clinical communities
"My research career has had a two-track trajectory in pediatrics and informatics, connected by my data analysis work and my technology interests. My research has not followed a straight path but has given me personal satisfaction in knowing how it has made a dent in several complex issues. For example, my early work launched the standards for pediatric palliative care and my recent work is influencing the development of nursing integration into electronic health records in hospitals," said Feeg.
