TWU student receives national nursing faculty fellowship


DENTON — Jose Alejandro, a doctoral student in nursing at Texas Woman’s University, recently was awarded a Promise of Nursing for Dallas/Fort Worth Regional Faculty Fellowship from the Foundation of the National Student Nurses’ Association (FNSNA).

Mr. Alejandro is one of 67 students in the nation and 10 in the state awarded a faculty fellowship from the FNSNA. The foundation awarded fellowships to graduate students in California, Georgia, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas and Washington.

As a fellowship recipient, he will receive a $7,500 stipend for his 2007-2008 TWU tuition and fees.

“Receiving this fellowship allows me the opportunity to continue my doctoral studies full time for the next school year. This will bring me closer in completing my degree plan and eventually a career in nursing education,” said Mr. Alejandro, RN, MSN, MBA, CCM. “This was definitely an honor to receive this fellowship from the FNSNA. My nursing education has truly come full circle since I was a member of the National Student Nurses Association and served as state secretary during my undergraduate nursing program.”

Mr. Alejandro is currently vice president of the National Association of Hispanic Nurses, president-elect of the DFW Chapter of the Case Management Society of America and serves on the Board of Directors for the Texas Nurses Association District 4.

The FNSNA’s Promises of Nursing Regional Faculty Fellowship program seeks to address the nurse educator shortage by providing funding for registered nurses pursuing graduate education to prepare them for a career as a nurse educator.

The FNSNA was created in 1969 to honor Frances Tompkins, the association’s first executive director. Organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes, the Foundation awards scholarships to qualified nursing students. Since 1974, the FNSNA has awarded over $2 million dollars in scholarships to undergraduate nursing students.
