Moore named Fulbright Specialist

Brenda Moore, an associate professor in the TWU College of Nursing, Houston, and director of the Center for Global Nursing at TWU, will travel to Cairo, Egypt as a Fulbright Specialist when the Fulbright Program resumes. The U.S. Department of State has temporarily suspended the program and postponed all Fulbright Specialist projects due to concerns about the coronavirus.

The Fulbright Specialist program is a three-year commitment during which U.S. faculty and professionals serve as expert consultants on curriculum, faculty development, institutional planning and related subjects at academic institutions abroad for a period of two to six weeks.

After the program reopens, Moore will conduct a workshop at a college in Cairo on using simulation in nursing education.

“Simulation refers to any artificial environment we create that simulates a clinical (hospital) situation,” Moore said. “Manikins (human-shaped models) can be used or people can be actors to help create a simulated environment.”

Moore has previous experience with the Fulbright Program, conducting research and lecturing as a Fulbright Scholar at The University of Jordan College of Nursing during the 2017-2018 school year.

Moore joins several TWU faculty who have received Fulbright awards, including Judith McFarlane, Joan Edwards, Richard Shuster, Mahesh S. Raisinghani, and more.
