Dana Rutledge Phd, RN receives ONS "Ellyn Bushkin Friend of the Foundation Award"

Our very own Dana Rutledge, PhD, RN, Nursing Research Facilitator at St. Joseph Hospital in Orange, California, recently received the prestigious "Ellyn Bushkin Friend of the Foundation Award" from the Oncology Nursing Society Foundation. The ONS Foundation reports that the purpose of the award is to recognize individuals who have provided continuous support to the mission of the ONS Foundation. Nominations are not accepted for this award; rather, the ONS Foundation Board selects the recipient. "The nominee must have demonstrated support of the ONS Foundation by making major financial contributions, coordinating significant fund-raising events, or promoting/enhancing the image of the ONS Foundation". The award is named in the memory of Ellyn Bushkin, an oncology nurse and a past president of the ONS Foundation.

Congratulations Dana!! You are so modest that we had to hear of this award second hand. Hope you don't mind our public congratulations!!
