UI Leader Wins Treasurer Post With International Nursing Society

Linda Q. Everett, Ph.D., associate director and chief nursing officer at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, recently won election to the office of treasurer of the board of directors of the foundation of one of the world's largest nursing organizations.

Everett will serve a four-year term as treasurer of the Sigma Theta Tau International Foundation Board of Directors. The nursing honor society elected Everett to the separate position of treasurer of its board of directors in November 1999. That group re-elected Everett to another two-year term as its treasurer in 2001. The foundation's board of directors is a subsidiary of the parent organization. Sigma Theta Tau has more than 240,000 inducted members.

Everett directs the Department of Nursing Services and Patient Care at UI Hospitals and Clinics. The department consists of about 1,400 nursing professionals. Everett joined the staff of UI Hospitals and Clinics in January 1999. The department recently received the prestigious Magnet Hospital Designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center. UI Hospitals and Clinics is the first hospital in Iowa to earn the international award.
