Never one to rest on her laurels, Sally has received a couple of fantastic honours already this year.

The Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International, has announced the honorees of the International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame.  UBC School of Nursing professor Dr. Sally Thorne has been named to the Hall of Fame. We couldn't be prouder of our esteemed colleague.

Dr. Thorne is recognized as an international leader in the application of qualitative methods to the expression of a nursing epistemological perspective on solving problems and translating knowledge into practice. She pioneered an applied qualitative methodology known as Interpretive Description, which has been widely taken up by nurses and others. Over the past three decades, Dr. Thorne has published 128 papers in peer reviewed journals as well as 27 book chapters, 57 invited commentaries and editorials, 56 non refereed papers and reports.

Lauded for her major contributions to nursing research that has shaped the face of qualitative research internationally, Dr. Sally Thorne will be inducted into the 2017 International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame on July 29, 2017 during the 28th International Nursing Research Congress in Dublin, Ireland.
