Stephanie Gilbertson-White joins nurse leader fellowship program

Stephanie Gilbertson-White, associate professor and director of the PhD program in the University of Iowa College of Nursing, is one of 11 nurse scientists accepted to the inaugural cohort of the Betty Irene Moore Fellowships for Nurse Leaders and Innovators. The new fellowship program, funded by a five-year, $37.5 million grant from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, recognizes early- to mid-career nursing scholars and innovators with a high potential to accelerate leadership in nursing research, practice, education, policy, and entrepreneurship.

As part of the three-year fellowship program, fellows receive $450,000 to conduct an innovative project or study with the potential to address a gap in knowledge, meet a vital need, alter care delivery, or design a new solution to advance health. Gilbertson-White’s project focuses on building a working prototype of a web/mobile app that incorporates multimorbidity phenotypic data collected from electronic health records to drive tailored symptom management support using personal informatics and behavior change principles.

“We are excited to see what our nurse leader fellows, including, Dr. Gilbertson-White accomplish during this fellowship and beyond,” says Stephen J. Cavanagh, dean and professor at the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis. “Our goal is to build and develop the next cadre of nurse leaders who can bring about change and innovation by networking and disseminating their knowledge across the nation.”

In addition to the project, the fellowship program features a hybrid online and classroom curriculum designed and taught in partnership with the UC Davis Graduate School of Management to enhance leadership and innovation capacity, strengthen strategic thinking and collaborative skills, expand professional networks, develop entrepreneurial skills, and propel innovative ideas to fruition. A mentor selected by the fellow and an additional mentor provided by the national program office round out the educational experience.
