The Institute for Nursing of the New Jersey State Nurses Association Foundation will present one of its Diva awards to Julia R. Plotnick, a Rutgers College of Nursing visiting faculty member, at its sixth Divas and Dons gala at the Hyatt Regency Princeton on Dec. 1.

Plotnick was one of several award recipients selected for significant contributions to nursing science in New Jersey.
