Rutgers-Camden Nursing Scholar Named Fellow of American Academy of Nursing
For Immediate Release
CAMDEN – Marlton resident Joanne P. Robinson, chair of the Department of Nursing at Rutgers University–Camden, has been selected as the only New Jersey nursing professional for induction as a Fellow in the American Academy of Nursing, one of the highest honors that can be bestowed in that field.
American Academy of Nursing Fellows represent “the nation’s top nurse researchers, policymakers, scholars, executives, educators, and practitioners,” according to AAN President Catherine Gilliss.
Selection criteria include evidence of significant contributions to nursing and health care, and the extent to which nominees’ nursing careers influence health policies and health care delivery for the benefit of all Americans.
Only 142 nursing professionals in the world were selected for this honor during 2011. They will be inducted during the AAN’s annual conference in Washington, DC, on Oct. 15.
Robinson, an associate professor of nursing at the Camden Campus of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, received the 2008 Urologic Nursing Catherine-Ann Lawrence Literary Excellence Award.
The award honored an article, “Psychometric Properties of the Male Urogenital Distress Inventory (MUDI) and the Male Urinary Symptom Impact Questionnaire (MUSIQ) in Patients Following Radical Prostatectomy,” co-authored by Robinson and originally published in the December 2007 edition of Urologic Nursing, the official journal of the Society of Urologic Nurses and Associates.
A noted scholar on nursing care for the elderly, Robinson is the co-author of the books Restraint-Free Care: Individualized Approaches for Frail Elders (Springer, 1998) and Reducing Restraints: Individualized Approaches to Behavior (Whitman Group, 1992), as well as more than 20 articles that have appeared in medical and professional research journals. She has served on the New Jersey Governor’s Advisory Council on Elder Care and chaired the New Jersey State Commission on Aging.
Her current research addresses the management of urinary symptoms in men with prostate cancer and Parkinson’s disease.
Robinson received her bachelor’s degree in nursing from William Paterson College in 1975 and her master’s degree in community health nursing from Rutgers–Newark in 1982. She then attended the University of Pennsylvania, where she earned her master’s degree in social gerontology (1994) and her doctoral degree in nursing (1995).
