Remembering Kathleen Heinrich, PhD, RN, FAAN

kth2_smallI have just learned of the death of our colleague, Kathleen Heinrich, on December 29, 2016. Kathleen died at home in Connecticut with her husband Chris at her side. She had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer in March, 2015.

A twice-tenured professor (University of San Diego, University of Hartford), Kathleen left academia in 2004 to establish her own business, KTH Consulting, with a mission “to prepare individuals, colleague-teams, and faculty groups to present, publish and peer mentor each other’s scholarly success.” Testimonials from colleagues who attended her workshops and seminars attest to her creativity, professional support, and collegiality. Kathy had a passion to change the culture of academia and help educators reach their full potential as scholars, teachers, and mentors.

51ai3tim9bl-_sx324_bo1204203200_Many reading this will be familiar with Kathy as the author of Dare to Share which was published in 2008 by Jones & Bartlett. With Marilyn Oermann, Kathy was a co-editor of the Annual Review of Nursing Education (Springer) for seven years. Kathy was a regular contributor to Nurse Author & Editor and a member of the Editorial Board of Nurse Educator. Her article, “Scholarly Joy-Stealing 10 Mean Games Educators Play and How to Imagine Something Different Together” was published in the January, 2017 issue of the journal (vol. 42, no. 1, pp. 1-2).

Kathy was a graduate of St. Anselm’s College (BSN, 1973), Boston University (MSN, 1976), and the University of Connecticut (PhD, Higher Education, 1988). She was inducted into the American Academy of Nursing in 2014.

On behalf of INANE, I send our deepest condolences and healing thoughts to Kathy’s family and friends.

Remembering Rosanne (Perez-Woods) Harrigan

With great sadness, we note that Dr. Rosanne Harrigan, MS, EdD, AORN-Rx, FAAN passed roseanneharriganaway on October 16, 2016. Our thoughts go out to her family, friends, colleagues and students. Dr. Rosanne Harrigan most recently served as the Chair of the Department of
Complementary and Integrative Medicine, University of Hawai’i School of Medicine. She was the former Dean of the University of Hawai’i Manoa School of Nursing and Dental Hygiene. She served on several nursing journal Editorial Boards, and authored books and journal articles in the area of Child and Maternal Health.

A graduate of Xavier College, Dr. Harrigan received her Masters in Nursing, credentials as a nurse practitioner, and her Doctor of Education from Indiana University. She was a professor at the Indiana University School of Nursing and adjunct professor of Pediatrics, Indiana University School of Medicine. She then became Niehoff Chair & Professor, Niehoff School of Nursing at Loyola University of Chicago.

For her professional excellence in pediatric nursing and maternal and child health, she was named Nurse of the Year by the American Nursing Association. In 1983, she was named National Nurse of the Year by the March of Dimes and in 1985 named to the prestigious New York Academy of Sciences.

In 1992, she came to Hawaiʻi from Chicago to be the Dean of the School of Nursing and Dental Hygiene. She instituted the PhD Program in Nursing. Her outstanding career continued in Hawaiʻi as she was named Distinguished Leader in Neonatal Nursing by the National Association of Neonatal Nurses Board of Directors in 1996. She had numerous peer reviewed publications and was on the editorial board of the Journal of Perinatal Neonatal, the Journal of Perinatology, Women’s Health (Jacob’s Institute for Women’s Health), and on the advisory board of the National Advisory Council for Nursing Research, National Institute of Nursing Research, National Institutes of Health.

Her research and clinical interests included cross-cultural care. She published papers on health disparities among different ethnic groups and about difference perceptions of health care among mothers in Asia and the U.S. She also studied barriers to health care among the Native Hawaiian and Samoan population.

Her work in cross-cultural healthcare has also contributed to her interest in Integrative Medicine. She worked part-time at Waimanalo Health Center whose service population is largely Native Hawaiian. There, as a nurse practitioner, she worked with traditional Hawaiian healers as well as physicians.

In 2002, she brought her expertise to the John A. Burns School of Medicine. She later became the Chair of the newly formed Department of Complementary and Alternative Medicine. The Department has since been renamed to the Department of Complementary and Integrative Medicine.

During her tenure with the medical school, Dr. Harrigan was the Graduate Chair for Biomedical Science in Clinical Research. She instituted a graduate program leading to the MS and PhD in biomedical sciences in clinical research for clinicians, researchers, educators, and consumers. In addition to offering knowledge and skills needed for careers in clinical research, the program functions a supportive mechanism for newly trained investigators, actively facilitating career development and encouraging research collaborations, particularly those related to research in health disparities.

As the Chair of Complementary and Integrative Medicine, she blended her strong research and clinical background together with a desire to serve the community. She brought a renewed perspective into the field of medicine by facilitating the integration of different disciplines to provide the best healthcare possible for a rapidly changing world.

In Memoriam: Nancy Kline, former Editor, Journal of Pediatric Oncology Nursing

We were sorry to learn of the death last year of Nancy E. Kline, PhD, RN, CPNP, FAAN February 24, 1959-April 20, 2015. Thank you to Kristin Stegenga, current Editor of the Journal of Pediatric Oncology Nursing for letting us know.

The following is excerpted from her tribute published shortly after her death in the Journal of Pediatric Oncology Nursing:

“Nancy Kline was a nurse, scientist, editor, teacher, friend, wife, daughter, aunt, mom to her fur-kids, and tireless advocate for children with life-threatening diseases.  In the course of her life, she touched thousands and left an amazing professional legacy ofKline_Nancy advocacy, service, and mentorship that is personified in her books, articles, research, and embodied in each of us.

She became the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Pediatric Oncology Nursing in 1998, serving for 17 years.  Nancy loved being the editor of JOPON.  She was able to engage, encourage, develop and mentor many colleagues during her tenure.  As a researcher, she understood how critical it was to lay a scientific foundation for our practice in order to improve the lives of the children we serve.  She poured herself into ensuring our journal was an elite publication.  Under her leadership, the journal was elevated to an award-winning status and attained an Impact Factor for the first time. Throughout her illness, she continued the work she loved, and completed editing her last JOPON shortly before her death.” (p. 429)
