Duval receives Indiana University recognition

As part of its 100th anniversary celebration, Indiana University School of Nursing officials have named Janet Barber Duval, a 1959 graduate of the former New Point High School, as one of the first recipients of the Alumni Legacy Leaders award, according to spokesperson Sally Krause.

The honor recognizes the outstanding contributions of 100 of the 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 the extraordinary alumni, Krause noted.

“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 health care system, continuing the tradition of excellence and leadership at Indiana University School of Nursing,” said Dean Marion Broome.

Barber Duval, who was honored June 21 as part of the anniversary celebration weekend, received her undergraduate nursing degree from the University of Cincinnati College of Nursing and Health in 1963 and a Master of Science in Nursing Education degree 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 as a clinical consultant.

She 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 is now editor of “Critical Care Nursing Quarterly,” a position she has 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 University of California.

She recently received the President’s Medal from the University of Bari, Italy, for her contributions to the development of the country’s first master’s program in forensic nursing. Barber Duval holds memberships in several organizations and was named Distinguished Fellow by the International Association of Forensic Nurses and was granted Retired Fellow status by the American Academy of Forensic Sciences in 2013.
