INDIANAPOLIS — The Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) will induct 25 nurse researchers into the International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame at STTI’s 25th International Nursing Research Congress in Hong Kong, 24-28 July 2014. On Saturday, 26 July, these 25 esteemed individuals representing the countries of Australia, Taiwan, United Kingdom and the United States will be presented with the International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame award, participate in a conversation with STTI President Hester C. Klopper, PhD, MBA, RN, RM, FANSA, and will be celebrated for their achievements.
 
Created in 2010, the International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame recognizes nurse researchers who have achieved significant and sustained national or international recognition and whose research has improved the profession and the people it serves. The honorees’ research projects will be shared through the Virginia Henderson International Nursing e-Repository, enabling nurses everywhere to benefit from their discoveries and insights. The award presentation is sponsored by Wiley.
 
“The combined accomplishments of these 25 honorees are nothing short of world changing,” said STTI President Hester C. Klopper, PhD, MBA, RN, RM, FANSA. “In keeping with the STTI mission to celebrate nursing excellence in scholarship, leadership, and service, I congratulate the 2014 Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame honorees. I look forward to learning more about their contributions and sharing them with our members worldwide.”
 
“Wiley is honored to stand alongside STTI in recognizing the contributions these 25 inductees have made in improving health both nationally and internationally.  The knowledge and expertise they have developed and shared has touched many lives, providing guidance and inspiration across generations.  I would like to congratulate each of them as recipients of this esteemed award as they enter the International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame,” said Wiley Associate Editorial Director, Nursing Griselda Campbell.
 
STTI’s annual International Research Nursing Congress (Congress) attracts more than 1,000 nurse researchers, students, clinicians, and leaders, who learn from evidence-based research presentations.
