Nursing Faculty Achievement

January 5, 2001-- The members of Beta Kappa Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International, the national honor society for nursing, recently announced the recipient of the Distinguished Nurse Award for 2001: Barbara M. Brodie, RN, PhD, FAAN.

The Distinguished Nurse award is presented biennially to nurses exemplifying excellence in nursing leadership. Nurses are selected for this award based on their recognition by the nursing community for their visionary and innovative leadership in education, practice, administration, and/or research. In addition, persons selected for this honor must help create an environment that enhances the image of nursing, as well as participate in the development of future nursing leaders and models of leadership.

Dr. Brodie has been a member of the University of Virginia School of Nursing faculty since 1970. She is the Madge M. Jones Professor of Nursing and director of the Center for Nursing Historical Inquiry. Brodie is recognized throughout the University and the nursing profession for her many academic accomplishments, including the authorship of numerous publications, presentations, and research on pediatrics, nursing history, nurse practitioners, and doctoral education. She is a fellow of the prestigious American Academy of Nursing, and serves on the editorial boards of several nursing journals and publications. She is a member of the University's Raven Society, and was elected an honorary alumna of the U.Va. School of Nursing in 1986. Most recently, Brodie is the proud author of Mr. Jefferson's Nurses, a 100-year history of the School of Nursing available at the school and the University Bookstore.

When you read the criteria for what it takes, how could you not vote for Dr. Brodie?" exclaimed chapter Awards Chair, doctoral candidate Victoria Menzies, RN, MSN. "Dr. Brodie built the nurse practitioner program at the school and played a critical role in making the nursing school what it is today. Her colleagues stand in awe of her. She makes all of us want to be the best".

An Awards Banquet in Dr. Brodie's honor will be held on April 29, 2001 at the Rotunda.
