F.A. Davis Company has been recognized by the American Journal of Nursing as the publisher of two of the 2011 Book-of-the-Year Award winners in two different categories, Electronic Media and Nursing Education.
These awards recognize the most valuable publications of the year, as chosen by AJN’s panel of judges. Peer-reviewed and evidence-based, AJN is considered the profession’s premier journal and has been identifying its selections of the year’s best work since 1969.
“We are honored that AJN has recognized the contributions of these authors to the education of the next generation of nurses and to the development of the field,” said Jean Rodenberger, Editor-in-Chief, Nursing. “These two titles reflect the interactive, technology-based models of learning that are changing how nursing is taught and how students are learning in today’s interconnected environments. We congratulate each of the authors on her accomplishments and thank them for their dedication to sharing their knowledge and experience with nursing students, educators, and clinicians.”
