BC nursing award for Marjorie MacDonald

Human and Social Development

Dr. Marjorie MacDonald (nursing) was presented the 2015 award for Excellence in Advancing Nursing Knowledge and Research by the Association of Registered Nurses of BC. This award recognizes nurses who conduct research with demonstrated practical applications, serve as mentors to beginning researchers, promote the application of research findings into nursing practice, and consistently demonstrate excellence, inclusion and innovation in the nursing profession. MacDonald is co-director of the Research in Public Health Systems and Services Initiative. Her current research projects include a review of the harm reduction potential of electronic cigarettes and vapour devices. “MacDonald’s heart and soul are in public health nursing,” says Rita Schreiber, associate director for graduate programs in nursing. “Because the importance of public health nursing has become increasingly visible, her work is all the more important for the people of BC and Canada.”
