A resident of Medford, Suplee received the annual award in honor of her distinguished career in clinical practice, scholarship, and teaching focused on women during the childbearing period. The Eastern Nursing Research Society presents the award in recognition of outstanding contributions by a senior nurse scientist who has a well-established program of family research and scholarship.

An expert on matters related to maternal health, women’s health, and nursing education, Suplee is the recipient of the 2014 March of Dimes Margaret Comerford Freda “Saving Babies, Together” Grant Award from the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric, and Neonatal Nurses. The award is presented annually to a researcher whose work reflects the common commitment of the March of Dimes and AWHONN to promote health among women and newborns.

She also has won the 2010 Journal of Nursing Education’s Top Teaching Tool Award for co-editing the textbook Handbook of Clinical Teaching in Nursing and Health Sciences (Jones and Bartlett, 2010). Her scholarship has appeared in numerous health-related journals and has been presented at health-oriented conferences nationwide.

In 2009, Suplee joined the faculty of the Rutgers School of Nursing–Camden where her engagement with students has commanded such honors as the Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching and the Chancellor’s Award for Academic Civic Engagement.

Prior to joining Rutgers University–Camden, Suplee served in several capacities at the Drexel College of Nursing and Health Professions and at the University of Pennsylvania.

Suplee earned her bachelor’s degree from Indiana University and her master’s and doctoral degrees from the University of Pennsylvania and has more than 25 years of professional nursing experience caring for childbearing women.

Launched in 1988 as the research arm of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Nursing Association and the New England Organization for Nursing, the Eastern Nursing Research Society is comprised of registered nurses and others interested in promoting nursing science.
