New fellowship for MS nurses. (National MS Society).
To address this need, the National MS Society has established an important new educational opportunity for nurses who plan to specialize in care for people with MS.
The John Dystel Nursing Fellowship
Funded by a generous contribution from Oscar Dystel, long-time member of the Society's National Board of Directors, the John Dystel Nursing Fellowship will provide expert, comprehensive clinical nursing education for a nurse who will then help train other nurses and become a leader in MS clinical care. Nurses selected for the program will work intensively for up to six months with a mentor in a Society-affiliated MS specialty clinic. Nursing fellows will be involved in supervised care of people with MS, working with an interdisciplinary health-care team including experts in physical medicine and rehabilitation, physical therapy occupational therapy speech therapy, social services, clinical and cognitive psychology, neurology; and vocational rehabilitation.
