Nancy Hodgson Named to International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame
LDI Senior Fellow Honored for Her Work in Geriatric and Palliative Nursing Practice
LDI Senior Fellow and Penn School of Nursing professor Nancy Hodgson, PhD, RN, has been named to the International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame. She will be inducted at the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing’s 33rd International Nursing Research Congress in Edinburgh, Scotland in July.
The annual Sigma Theta Tau Hall of Fame appointments honor researchers whose work has achieved significant and sustained broad recognition for its impact on the nursing profession and on the population of patients it serves. Established a century ago, the invitation-only honor society is the world’s second largest nursing organization with 135,000 members and 530 chapters worldwide.
Hodgson, Chair of the School of Nursing’s Department of Biobehavioral Health Sciences, is an internationally renowned scientist in the field of geriatric nursing and palliative care.
In a press statement, Penn Nursing Dean and LDI Senior Fellow Antonia Villarruel, PhD, RN, FAAN, hailed Hodgson’s induction as “a well-deserved recognition of her work and impact to preserve the dignity of persons with dementia care while providing support to caregivers. She is a Penn Nursing alumna and we are all very proud of her accomplishments and to count her among our faculty.”
