Frontier Nursing University
This month we are featuring one of our new Editorial Review Group Chairs, Dr. Barbara Anderson, who graciously agreed to take on three key specialties – Public Health, Community Health Nursing, and Maternal-Child Nursing. All of these are heavily published areas and, since June, we have sent her 50 books. Dr. Anderson hit the ground running and, remarkably, we have already received reviews of 30 of these titles, written by 23 reviewers she recruited from 14 different institutions across the country.
We recently learned that she was honored with the 2019 National League for Nursing Mary Adelaide Nutting award for Outstanding Teaching or Leadership in Nursing Education. Read the announcement here: http://www.nln.org/newsroom/news-releases/news-release/2019/08/09/national-league-for-nursing-announces-nln-award-winners-for-2019.
Dr. Anderson was lead editor of the first and second editions of Best Practices in Midwifery: Using the Evidence to Implement Change (Springer Publishing Company 2013, 2017), lead editor of DNP Capstone Projects: Exemplars of Excellence in Practice (Springer Publishing Company, 2015), coeditor of the second through fifth editions of Caring for the Vulnerable: Perspectives in Nursing Theory, Practice, and Research (Jones & Bartlett Learning, 2008, 2012, 2016, 2019), and lead editor of The Maternal Health Crisis in America: Nursing Implications for Advocacy and Practice (Springer Publishing Company, 2019).
She has a long career in nursing, public health, and nurse-midwifery, nursing education at all levels, mentorship, program planning, curriculum development, academic administration, and global consultation and field work. She is a referee for Social Science & Medicine and the International Journal of Childbirth, and is the 2018 winner of the media award from the American Association of Birth Centers.
