In Memory of Carol “Pat” Patsdaughter, PhD, RN, ACRN

INANE members were sad to learn of the death of Pat Patsdaughter on January 26, 2014. Pat was the Associate Editor of the Journal of Nurses in AIDS Care (JANAC) and on the faculty at Florida International University. You may read a tribute to Pat here. Consider a donation in her memory to support mentoring of future nursing editors–one of Pat’s passions. You can donate here.

In Memory of Suzanne P. Smith, EdD, RN, FAAN

On September 20, 2013, we lost a very dear colleague and friend.  Visit the featured blog post announcing her death, and see the many tributes to Suzanne in the comments.
