Marilyn H. Oermann, professor and director of evaluation and educational research at Duke University School of Nursing, received the Elizabeth Russell Belford Founders Award for Excellence in Education from Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI), the honor society of nursing.
The award, named in honor of one of the five founding members of STTI, is awarded every two years and pays tribute to excellence in teaching, significant contributions toward advancing the science of nursing education, and influencing the professional practice and public image of nursing.
Marilyn Oermann writes:
“This award is important to me because I have spent my career helping nurses learn about evaluation, clinical teaching, and teaching in nursing and preparing them for their role as a nurse educator. Springer has always been committed to nursing education and is the leading publisher of nursing education books. My current books published by Springer Publishing include Evaluation and Testing in Nursing Education (4th ed., 2014), Writing for Publication in Nursing (2nd ed., 2010), Clinical Teaching Strategies in Nursing (4th ed., 2015), and a new book: Teaching in Nursing and Role of the Educator: The Complete Guide to Best Practice in Teaching, Evaluation, and Curriculum Development (2015). I also served as the editor of the Annual Review of Nursing Education, which was published by Springer Publishing.
Thank you to Springer Publishing for publishing the books nurses need to be expert teachers.”
