Jaclene A. Zauszniewski, PhD, RN-BC, FAAN
Congratulations to Hildegard Peplau Award Winner!
The ANA recognizes Outstanding Contributions to Nursing through their National Awards Program. The Hildegard Peplau Award was established in 1990 to honor a nurse who has made significant contributions to nursing practice over a lifetime through scholarly activities, clinical practice, and policy development, specifically directed towards the psychosocial and psychiatric aspects of nursing care delivery.
This year the award goes a very deserving recipient, Jaclene A. Zauszniewski, PhD, RN-BC, FAAN.
When asked how she felt when she heard the news of her selection, Jaclene said, "I was so thrilled to hear of my selection as the recipient of this very prestigious award. When I look at the list of former recipients, I consider myself so honored to be listed among them. Their contributions to psychiatric nursing have advanced our specialty's knowledge, practice, and research to make it what it is today. And, I will consider it my challenge and calling to continue this important work through my mentorship of the psychiatric nurses of the future."
Please join us as we congratulate long time APNA member and contributor on an honor that is well earned!
