TWU’s Dr. Susan Chaney named a Fellow of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners




DALLAS – Texas Woman’s University nursing professor Dr. Susan Chaney, Ed.D., APRN, BC, FNP-C, was inducted as a Fellow of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (FAANP) during the AANP’s 21st Annual National Conference held at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center in June.

Dr. Chaney was one of 19 nurse practitioners selected for this national honor. The FAANP program was established in 2000 to recognize nurse practitioner leaders who have made outstanding contributions to health care through nurse practitioner clinical practice, research, education or policy.

“I am very honored to have been selected as a Fellow of the AANP,” Dr. Chaney said. “I hope to make continued contributions to health care through this honor and in my role as an educator of nurse practitioner students at TWU.”

Dr. Chaney serves as a professor of nursing and coordinator of the nursing master’s degree program at the TWU Dallas-Parkland campus. A TWU alum, Dr. Chaney also maintains a part-time clinical practice as a family nurse practitioner for Parkland Hospital’s Homeless Outreach Medical Services.

Dr. Chaney recently received the highest honor bestowed to a senior faculty member at TWU — The Cornaro Award — in recognition for her excellence in teaching, scholarship and achievement.

With more than 12,000 alumni and more than 2,300 undergraduate and graduate students, TWU has the largest college of nursing in Texas and produces more new nurses than any other program in the state. For more information about TWU’s College of Nursing, call (940) 898-2401 or visit www.twu.edu.

With more than 21,000 individual members and 120 group members, AANP represents the interests of approximately 95,000 nurse practitioners around the country.
