Greetings from Delta Lambda!
Norma Metheny Inducted into International Researcher Hall of Fame
Norma Metheny, PhD, RN, FAAN, was elected to the International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame and accepted the award in Hong Kong in July, 2014. She was one of 25 nurses world-wide who received this recognition in 2014. The purpose of the Sigma Theta Tau Nurse International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame is to recognize nurse researchers who are STTI members and who have achieved significant and sustained national and/or international recognition for their work and whose research has impacted the profession and the people it serves. Dr Metheny is a professor at Saint Louis University School of Nursing, USA, where she serves as associate dean of research. She also holds the Dorothy A. Votsmier Endowed Chair in Nursing. In the past 20 years, Dr. Metheny has conducted six major National Institutes of Health-funded studies of methods to prevent complications in critically ill tube-fed patients. Findings from her studies serve as the basis for widely circulated practice guidelines to determine feeding tube placement and to prevent aspiration associated with tube feedings. Among her numerous awards are the GE Healthcare-AACN Pioneering Spirit Award and the Distinguished Research Lecturer award from the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses and Distinguished Research Contribution from the Midwest Nursing Research Society. Dr. Metheny serves as a mentor for junior faculty and doctoral students, and communicates with nurses around the world who work to improve care of tube-fed patients. She is a member of Delta Lambda Chapter.
