Dr Parveen Ali honoured with prestigious industry award

Parveen aliCongratulations to Dr Parveen Ali from our School of Nursing and Midwifery - she’s been recognised for impacting her profession and named an emerging nurse researcher by the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI or ΣΘΤ).

Created in 2015, the Emerging Nurse Researcher award recognizes one nurse researcher from each of the STTI global regions who has received his or her PhD within the last five years and whose research has impacted the profession and the people it serves.

Parveen said of her award: “I am honored to receive the Emerging Nurse Researcher Award. Receiving this award is a significant milestone for me and recognises my contribution to the profession. It helps me become a role model for nurses in the UK (especially those internationally qualified and from minority ethnic background) and Pakistan.

“It will encourage people in a similar stage of their career to work hard to enhance their profession in whatever part of the world they work. I hope that the award will provide opportunities to network with other award recipients and academics from various STTI chapters around the world.”

STTI President Cathy Catrambone, PhD, RN, FAAN said: “Congratulations to these emerging nurse researchers. I look forward to learning from each of them about all they have achieved early in their careers and the tremendous impact their work will have on health and nursing worldwide.”

Parveen, who is also an alumna of our University, will be presented with an Emerging Nurse Researcher award at a ceremony on Friday, 28 July 2017, along with only two other recipients from Ghana and the United States.

STTI is the second-largest nursing organization in the world with approximately 135,000 active members.
