Ann Kurth Inducted Into the International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame

September 17, 2013

Ann Kurth, professor and executive director of NYU College of Nursing Global, is one of 19 nurse researchers recently inducted into Sigma Theta Tau’s International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame, at the 24th International Nursing Research Congress in Prague, Czech Republic.


Created in 2010, the Hall of Fame recognizes nurse researchers who have achieved significant and sustained national or international recognition, and whose research has improved the profession and the people it serves.


Kurth is Slovak on her mother’s side. Her family became American as a result of her maternal great-grandmother’s death in childbirth, due to lack of a health provider. To escape those memories, her heartbroken great-grandfather immigrated to the U.S., with her 3-year old grandmother in tow. That grandmother volunteered as a nursing aide in WWII, and Kurth’s mother also became a nurse.


“I am extremely humbled to receive this award among a cohort of leading nurse researchers, several of whose mentoring I have benefited tremendously from over the years,” says Kurth. “Furthermore, to be inducted in Prague, where I have maternal heritage, closes a circle.”
