NURSE SCIENTISTS RECOGNIZED IN 2018 RDML MARY F. HALL AWARD FOR NURSING PUBLICATION
With the heart and dedication to serve the people in healthcare, nurses stand out in any field and in whatever position they are assigned.
Recently in a news release, nurse scientists from Naval Medical Center San Diego (NMCSD) were notified that they will be presented with the 2018 RDML Mary F. Hall award for nursing publication.
Cmdr. Abigail Yablonsky, principal investigator for Naval Health Research Center’s Directorate for Military Population Health and Cmdr. Wendy Cook, Nurse Corps scientist and head of Nursing Research and Analysis at Clinical Investigation department at NMCSD, are winners for this year’s highly acclaimed nursing publication award recognizing Navy nurses who contribute to nursing through professional publications.
Department of Veterans Affairs nurses, active duty nurses, reservists, and DoD Federal civilian registered nurses, are among those qualified to submit published works for recognition.
“Both Cmdr. Cook and Cmdr. Yablonsky have been wonderful to work with,” said Senior Nurse Researcher at NMCSD Capt. Heather King. “They are dedicated nurse scientists who continually strive to create and disseminate new knowledge to benefit our NMCSD service members and beneficiaries.”
Cmdr. Yablonsky won first place for her publication on “Research, Readiness, and Military Parents”, published by the Defense Visual Information Distribution Service under the non-peer reviewed category. While, Cmdr. Cook was one of the co-authors who received first runner up in the peer-reviewed category for research findings on “U.S. Military Service Members’ Reasons for Deciding to Participate in Health Research”, published on Research in Nursing and Health.
