Dr. Atz selected for John R. Raymond Fellowship
Teresa Atz, PhD, RN, has been named a recipient of the 2014-2015 John R. Raymond Fellowship. The Fellowship is intended to provide financial support for selected full-time female faculty members to initiate a relationship with a mentor who is an expert in their chosen field. The female faculty’s field of interest may be in research, clinical practice, or education/teaching. The fellowship is administered by ARROW (formerly the Women Scholars Initiative) with support from the Office of the Provost.
Atz, assistant professor, focuses on parents of pediatric research participants, specifically their transition experiences after the conclusion of their child’s clinical trial. For the JRR Fellowship, she will be mentored by Suzan Kardong-Edgren, PhD, RN at Boise State University on a project that will advance simulation in nursing education by developing, implementing, and testing scenarios that improve nursing graduates’ transition from student to RN.
