Nancy Lowe, a professor and department chair of the Division of Women, Children, and Family Health at the College of Nursing (CON), and Martha Levine, a third-year Ph.D. student, recently were awarded the 2012 Doris Kemp Smith Faculty and Ph.D. Student Award by the CON Research Committee and Office of Research and Extramural Affairs.

The honor recognizes the research team’s project “Revision and Psychometric Testing of the Nurse Attitudes and Beliefs Questionnaire.”

The award provides research support for the team. Levine’s research focus is the relationship between nurse attitudes and beliefs towards childbirth and Cesarean section rates.
