IU School of Nursing announces alumni legacy leaders

INDIANAPOLIS – As part of its 100th Anniversary Celebration, Indiana University School of Nursing is pleased to announce that Janet Barber Duval, MSN, RN, FAAFS, local resident and a 1959 graduate of the former New Point High School has been named as one of the first recipients of the Alumni Legacy Leaders award.

This award recognizes the outstanding contributions of 100 of our more than 30,000 living alumni. The awardees demonstrate exceptional contributions to nursing through education, clinical practice, leadership, and/or research. The breadth and depth of their contributions were considered in conjunction with the types and years that their degrees were awarded. A competitive submission and review process was used to select 100 extraordinary alumni for this award.

“We are extremely proud of our Top 100 Alumni Legacy Leaders. Their contributions have made a deep and lasting impact on the profession of nursing and in the healthcare system, continuing the tradition of excellence and leadership at Indiana University School of Nursing,” said Dean Marion Broome.

Barber Duval will be honored June 21, as part of the 100th Anniversary Celebration Weekend. She received her undergraduate nursing degree from the University of Cincinnati College of Nursing and Health in 1963 and a MS in Nursing Education from Indiana University in 1965. After serving on the faculties of Methodist Hospital School of Nursing, Purdue University and Indiana University for 16 years she was commissioned in the United States Air Force in 1980. Military assignments included clinical leadership and educational roles in critical care, contingency planning and medical readiness. As an Air Force officer, she served as Consultant to the USAF Surgeon General for Emergency and Trauma Care and received the Air Force Association’s highest nursing award for contributions to military medicine.

She retired with the rank of Colonel in 2001 and subsequently was affiliated with Hill-Rom Company as a Clinical Consultant. Barber Duval has authored several textbooks in adult and child care, emergency care, and forensic nursing, and formerly held the post of Editor for the Journal of Emergency Nursing. She currently is Editor of Critical Care Nursing Quarterly, a position held for 38 years. She has been an influential nurse educator, having had teaching positions in continuing education and for online courses in forensic nursing for the University of Texas, University of New Mexico and the University of California.
