Niehoff Scholarly Writing Program

The Niehoff Scholarly Writing Program was developed and implemented by Niehoff Endowed Chair for Research, Linda Janusek. The purpose is to increase the dissemination of research findings and publication of other scholarly projects by School of Nursing faculty; particularly junior faculty.  During the spring semester, participating faculty are guided in the identification of manuscripts, selection of journals, and writing of the manuscript.  Manuscripts include preparation of results of research studies or theoretical papers related to health issues and/or nursing education.  The program culminates in a 2.5 day writing retreat at the Loyola Ecology and Retreat campus, facilitated by Marilyn Oermann, PhD, RN, FAAN, ANEF, Thelma M. Ingles Professor of Nursing and Director of Evaluation and Educational Research at Duke University School of Nursing, and author of Writing for Publication in Nursing.   

Three workshops have been conducted, most recently July 8-10, 2015. The program has achieved success, with a total of 15 articles published; and 12 manuscripts in process from the recent 2015 workshop.  Below is a listing of this year's participants.
