- IUPUI Maynard K. Hine Medal (2019)
Nursing has been a lifelong journey for Marjorie Kurt, B.S.N. 1977, M.S.N. 1986, and countless patients and their families have benefitted from her commitment to outstanding patient care and nursing for more than 60 years.
As an IU School of Nursing full-time faculty member since 1988, she has served selflessly to help create the best teaching environment for students. Recognized as an IUSON Outstanding Clinical Professor, she was commended for her student guidance, support, enthusiasm, and strong commitment to high standards of patient care.
Kurt has been an integral part of the Alpha Chapter of the Sigma Theta Tau International honor society of nursing since her induction in the 1980s, serving as president for two terms, and as a board member thereafter providing leadership at conventions, and achieving numerous awards.
In recognition of her work, the Alpha Chapter of SSTI created a special award in her honor, and she was selected as one of the IU School of Nursing's Top 100 Alumna Legacy Leaders during the school's 100th anniversary in 2014.
