Dr. Cindy Munro earns national research leadership award

Cindy L. Munro, PhD, ANP-BC, FAANP, FAAN, FAAAS, was recently selected to receive the 2017 Leadership in Research Award by the Southern Nursing Research Society (SNRS).

Dr. Munro, professor and associate dean for Research and Innovation for the USF College of Nursing, was chosen for her numerous outstanding contributions to leadership in the SNRS and promotion of nursing and health care research. The designation is not awarded annually, but only when the SNRS board of directors determines a qualified designee. Dr. Munro is the ninth recipient of the Leadership in Research Award in SNRS’s 31 year history.

Dr. Munro, who joined USF in 2011 and is also co-editor in chief of the American Journal of Critical Care, received the award at the group’s annual conference in Dallas in February.

The SNRS was founded in 1986 and includes 14 states in the Society region: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia. In 1991, the boundaries were expanded to include the Caribbean, Latin America and the Bahamas.
