This October, CSC’s Dr. Su An Phipps, Program Manager for our Healthy Women, Healthy Futures – Oklahoma initiative, was the recipient of the 2017 Oklahoma Nurses Association Nursing Research Award. The Nursing Research Award recipient is a nurse who has made a significant impact on nursing practice through the use of research as a basis for practice innovation. Significant impact on nursing practice means that the nurse has contributed to the creation of new nursing knowledge through research findings; and has improved or created a plan for improving clinical nursing practice and/or patient outcomes in response to the findings.
Specifically, Dr. Phipps was honored for her decades of work devoted to improving Oklahoma’s poor statistics for at-risk mothers and infants.
The mission of the Oklahoma Nurses Association is to empower nurses to improve health care in all specialties and practice settings by working as a community of professional nurses. We are very proud of Dr. Phipps for her extraordinary contributions to health care and health research in Oklahoma.
