Nurses Week 2021

It is Nurses Week 2021 and we express a huge appreciation for nurses everywhere and the work they did this year. We are filled with more hope this year instead of the exhaustion many nurses felt a year ago. For a reminder of some of the heroic stories of last year, visit Nurses Week 2020.

This year, we continue to recognize the great work nurses are doing across the country. In addition to thanking all of them, the TWU College of Nursing would also like to recognize some of our own.

  • Rebecca Keele, PhD, RN, PHCNS-BC
  • Peggy Landrum, PhD, RN
  • Catherine Martin, MSN, APRN, FNP-C

These three represent a small portion of the entire nursing faculty at TWU across Denton, Dallas and Houston campuses. The faculty adapted to an ever-changing world over the past year to provide an outstanding education to nurses and prospective nurses.

Thank you!
