Six Nursing Faculty Named Among Great 100 Nurses

Six faculty members from the USF College of Nursing were among the Great 100 Nurses named by the Florida Nurses Association (FNA) and published in the December 2009 issue of The Florida Nurse.

In addition, four students from the College of Nursing earned scholarships from the Florida Nurses Foundation. The students are Jessica Ann Dorey, Stewart Hood, Carol Parrales, and Susan Thorsen.

FNA chose the 100 nurses based on nominations by peers for excellence in diverse areas of nursing practice. Each received a commemorative pin and certificate at the FNA’s Centennial Convention Great 100 Nurses Gala, held last fall.

The Great 100 Nurses from USF included the following.

Within the Education category: Cecilia Jevitt, CNM, PhD, Associate Professor; and Barbara Redding, RN, EdD, Professor and Director of Nurse Education.
