•  Best Signed Editorial for “Seeing Pink” by Deborah Mayer, PhD, RN, AOCN®, FAAN

•  Best Peer-Reviewed Journal for the June, August, and October 2012 issues

“I am thrilled that our journal was recognized and honored by ASHPE,” said Mayer. “It takes a village of staff and volunteers to produce this clinically relevant and meaningful publication. Our goal is to improve the care of patients with cancer and to mentor new authors, so it is meaningful to be recognized in this way.”
