Every fall, publishers from technology and R&D firms, government agencies and institutes, non-governmental organizations such as the World Bank, university presses, and professional associations throughout the Washington, DC, area submit their publications to an awards competition run by the Society for Technical Communication’s (STC) regional chapter.
International in its membership and the largest such group in the world, the STC grants its awards based on the total integrated quality of a print or electronic publication, thus recognizing team work across department lines. Nursesbooks.org, the publishing program of the American Nurses Association (ANA), is dedicated to bringing such publishing expertise to the interdisciplinary profession of nursing.
The STC has just granted ANA Awards of Excellence for 2007 on the content, writing, editing, design, and integration of the following two titles:
- Transforming Nursing Data into Quality Care: Profiles of Quality Improvement in U.S. Healthcare Facilities, by Isis Montalvo, RN, MS, MBA (Manager, ANA Nursing Practice and Policy) & Nancy Dunton, PhD (Director, National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators)
- Teaching IOM: Implications of the IOM Reports for Nursing Education, by Anita Finkelman, MSN, RN, (Nurse Consultant and Adjunct Faculty Member, University of Oklahoma, College of Nursing) and Carole Kenner, DNS, RNC, FAAN (Dean and Professor, University of Oklahoma, College of Nursing)
Please join ANA in recognizing the excellent work of these four authors and the ANA Editor/Project Manager, Eric Wurzbacher.
