Rutgers College of Nursing faculty member to receive a Diva Award

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.

"I am honored that my work and contributions in addressing the children's healthcare needs have been recognized by my peers and colleagues," said Plotnick, a visiting professor at the College of Nursing at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, and a Piscataway, N.J. resident.

Plotnick, who is also a consultant to the Nursing Center for Bioterrorism and Infectious Diseases Preparedness and an administrative consultant to the New Jersey Collaborating Center for Nursing at Rutgers College of Nursing, came to the college in 1996 when she retired as the Assistant Surgeon General and Chief Nurse Officer of the U.S. Public Health Service.

During her time at the U.S. Public Health Service, as a community health and maternal/child specialist, Plotnick was in charge of more than 5,000 civil service and Commissioned Corp nurses.

She also served as an international consultant on nursing and healthcare in numerous countries including Romania, Uganda, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Zaire and Croatia and represented the United States on the Global Advisory Group on Nursing to the Director General of the World Health Organization.
