Three faculty members from the Department of Nursing at Monmouth University were chosen to present their research at the 30th International Nursing Research Congress organized by the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing. The conference theme was “Theory-to-Practice: Catalyzing Collaboration to Connect Globally” and took place in Calgary, Alberta from July 25 to 29.
Judith Egan, Ph.D., coordinator of the pre-licensure Bachelor of Science in nursing program, presented her research “General Systems Theory Guided Evaluation of a Remediation Policy for Students Preparing for NCLEX-RN”; Patricia Sciscione, Ph.D., assistant professor of nursing, presented her study “Incorporating Future Planning into the Medical Plan of Care for Adults with Down Syndrome”; and Polina Amburg, Ph.D., specialist professor of nursing, presented her study “Traditional Health-Related Practices of Russian-Speaking Immigrants.”
Approximately 1,200 global nursing colleagues from over 40 countries gathered to exchange evidence-based information and research discoveries during the conference.
“This multicultural gathering united nurses with a common goal—improving health and advancing their professional practice with the help of research,” said Egan. “This type of event allows nurses to exchange their knowledge and learn from each other. It was an unique opportunity to meet colleagues from different countries of the world, and make new connections for future research and collaboration.”
