School of Nursing Professor Conducted Publishing Workshop to Support Faculty with Publications

School of Nursing Professor Beth Gazza hosted a publishing workshop to create a supportive culture that could help faculty be successful with publications. The workshop consisted of a panel of presenters who had varying levels of publication experience and represented assistant and associate professors and associate deans.

Each presenter shared a publication experience and recommendations to help faculty with publication endeavors. Afterward, faculty compiled the recommendations into a manuscript to disseminate to a broader audience as a way to demonstrate how co-mentoring specific to publication could be accomplished in any setting.
