LA CROSSE, Wis. - Staci Wenaas, a Viterbo College nursing major, is one of only 20 recipients from across the United States to receive the prestigious Helene Fuld Trust Fellowship for emerging nurse leaders.

As a 2000 Fuld Fellow, Wenaas will participate in a leadership conference in New York City from June 18-28. The conference will focus on issues and themes shaping the health care system in the 21st Century—interdisciplinary collaboration, community-based practice, and cross-cultural competence. The 2000 Fuld Fellows will then gather in October in Washington, D.C. for a Capstone Retreat.

The Fellows will also develop mentoring relationships with health care professionals. The mentorships will serve them well beyond their fellowship.

"This is a real opportunity especially because of the networking—meeting people who can help advance my career and help me define my goals for the future," said Wenaas, a junior.

Wenaas was nominated for the award by the Dean of Viterbo’s School of Nursing Silvana Richardson, and selected by the Helene Fuld Fellowship Selection Committee from approximately 300 applicants.

"Staci is a very hard worker, an excellent student, and is also very kind and humble. We are so pleased that she’s been chosen as a Fuld Fellow and we’re confident she’ll make an outstanding nurse," said Richardson.

Following her anticipated graduation in 2001, Wenaas plans to work as a nurse for several years and then pursue her master’s degree.

Wenaas is the daughter of Michael and Linda Wenaas from Eleva.
