Connell School of Nursing Assistant Professor Jinhee Park has been awarded the inaugural Eastern Nursing Research Society (ENRS) Nursing Research Authorship Award for her paper titled “Factors Associated with Feeding Progression in Extremely Preterm Infants.”
The Nursing Research Authorship Award recognizes an ENRS member who disseminated research findings, or important theoretical, or methodological advances in the official ENRS Journal, Nursing Research, within the previous year. Her paper was published in the May/June 2015 issue of Nursing Research.
Park’s research seeks to improve health and developmental outcomes of infants and young children with feeding problems and their families. Her clinical background is in neonatal nursing, and her work has focused on early feeding intervention supports for high-risk preterm infants in NICU.
