International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame

Created in 2010, the International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame recognizes nurse researchers who have achieved significant and sustained national or international recognition and whose research has improved the profession and the people it serves. Hall of Fame honorees are inducted annually at Sigma’s International Nursing Research Congress where nearly 1,000 nurse researchers, students, clinicians, and leaders learn from evidence-based research presentations. Following the 2020 induction, Sigma has recognized 218 nurse researchers. These esteemed individuals represent 15 countries: Australia, Belgium, Canada, Finland, Hong Kong, Lebanon, Mexico, Republic of Korea, Singapore, South Africa, Sweden, Taiwan, Thailand, United Kingdom, and the USA. Award presentation sponsored by Wiley.

Created in 2015 and revised in 2019, the Emerging Nurse Researcher/Scholar Award recognizes early career nurse researchers and scholars from each of Sigma’s seven global regions whose research or scholarship has influenced the nursing profession and the people it serves. Following the 2020 award presentation, Sigma has recognized 19 nurse researchers. These early career nurse researchers represent all seven of Sigma’s global regions: Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America/Caribbean, Middle East, North America, and Oceania.
