Dr. Olga Petrovskaya receives Dorothy Kergin Award

The Dorothy Kergin Endowment fund is a unique funding opportunity administered by the School of Nursing. Graduate students and faculty may apply for monies in an annuity in memory of Dorothy Kergin, a former University of Victoria, School of Nursing Director and nationally distinguished nurse researcher, educator and consultant. 

"My first book, Nursing theory, postmodernism, post-structuralism, and Foucault, will be published by Routledge in September 2022. The Dorothy J. Kergin Endowment fund has allowed me to hire an editor to assist with finalizing the manuscript. In the midst of my regular work life and commitments to research, teaching, and service to both the School of Nursing and internationally, I have found that writing a book is a huge undertaking. Receiving this award has helped to lighten the load."  O. Petrovskaya
