DENTON — Gov. Rick Perry has appointed Donna Scott Tilley, Texas Woman’s University associate professor of nursing, to the state’s Nursing Facility Administrators Advisory Committee.

Dr. Tilley is the only nurse on this state nursing home regulatory committee and will serve a five-year term, which expires Feb. 1, 2013.

The Nursing Facility Administrators Advisory Committee advises the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services on licensing and regulation of nursing facility administrators.

The committee consists of one physician, three nursing facility administrators, one registered nurse, one social worker and three public members.

“We have an essential duty as educators to serve the state at the highest level,” Dr. Tilley, RN, Ph.D., said. “Serving on this committee also helps me stay current in issues of abuse and neglect, my research area.”

Dr. Tilley of Fort Worth is a past board member of Hospice of Lubbock and Women’s Protective Services, and member of the Texas Nurses Association and Southern Nursing Research Association. She received a bachelor’s and master’s degree from Texas Tech University and a doctorate in nursing from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.
