The induction ceremony will occur at STTI’s 26th International Nursing Research Congress, July 23-27 in Puerto Rico. Representing Australia, Belgium, Canada and the United States, honorees will be presented with the International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame award and participate in a conversation with STTI President Hester C. Klopper, PhD, MBA, RN.

An internationally recognized expert on pain and symptom management, Miaskowski has more than 300 peer-reviewed publications and received millions of dollars in funding from the National Institutes of Health.

“This research award, from nursing’s premier international honor society, is not given to me,” said Miaskowski, an American Cancer Society clinical research professor. “It is given to all of my faculty colleagues and superb staff who have been a part of my research teams, all of my students, and most important – to all of the patients who have participated in our research studies.”

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 Global Nursing e-Repository, enabling nurses everywhere to benefit from their discoveries and insights. The award presentation is sponsored by Wiley.

“These 19 honorees have achieved life-changing results through their research,” Klopper said. “In keeping with the STTI mission to celebrate nursing excellence in scholarship, leadership, and service, I congratulate the 2015 Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame honorees. I look forward to learning more about their contributions and sharing them with our members worldwide.”
