RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Two University of Nevada, Reno Orvis School of Nursing faculty members were recently named to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing’s prestigious Leadership for Academic Nursing Program.

Stephanie DeBoor, Ph.D., R.N., CCRN, assistant professor and associate director for graduate programs, and Christine Aramburu Alegria, Ph.D., R.N., FNP-BC, assistant professor and doctorate of nursing practice coordinator, were selected for this executive leadership fellowship designed to prepare a more diverse, younger pool of leaders.

Launched by the AACN in 2001 with funding from the Helene Fuld Health Trust, the annual Leadership for Academic Nursing Program is available for mid- to upper-level faculty aspiring to lead the nursing academic unit or who are new to the dean/director role.

In addition to teaching Level IV theory and doctorate of nursing practice administration courses, DeBoor’s research interests lie in neuro trauma, head and spine injuries and educational methodologies.

Aramburu Alegria’s professional interests are in the identity, relationships, and health promotion in marginalized populations, in particular the transgender and obese populations; qualitative research; global health and nursing; and the role and potential of the doctorate of nursing practice in today's dynamic healthcare environment.

The Leadership for Academic Nursing Program will be held the last week in July in Colorado Springs, Colo.
