Scholarly Achievements

Faculty are recognized for their scholarly achievements by submitting their citations, grant award notifications and appointments to Gay Nell Krauss for posting in the Center’s display case located on the 4th floor of Godchaux Hall.

An award is given annually to first-time published authors and authors of clinical publications most likely to influence care across America. These authors are also invited to a celebratory lunch with Dean Norman. These lunches are scheduled throughout the year.

Data on faculty achievement is also collected every semester via the Faculty Achievement Record Survey (FARS):

  • Invitation to participate (plus reminders) are sent to email addresses on the VUSN faculty list at the end of every semester
  • Faculty with publications, presentations, awards or editorships for that semester, should enter them in the FARS survey
  • This information is used for VUSN publications (Scholarly Nurse) and for annual productivity assessment
