SCNF announces recipient of Ruth A. Nicholson Research Award.
Dr. Cathy Dyches, Assistant Professor, Clemson University Department of Nursing, has been named the recipient of the Ruth A.
Nicholson Research Award. Dr. Dyches' project entitiled
"Educating for Rural Health Practice" is a study that involves
Clemson University and eight rural hospitals in the surrounding counties. The purpose of the research is to discover the resources and
needs of rural hospitals to encourage the use of these facilities for
the school's BSN students' clinical experiences. One goal of
the project is to assist rural hospitals with recruitment and retention
of baccalaureate nurse graduates to increase health restoration, health
promotion, and health maintenance in rural communities. The SCNF is
pleased to support Dr. Dyches in her research endeavor and looks forward
to learning more about the results of the study.
