The University of Texas at Tyler recently announced that nursing undergraduate student Robert Ramos of Palestine was elected secretary/treasurer to the National Student Nurses' Association Board of Directors for the 2018-19 year.

"Strong faculty mentorship and hands-on experience in patient advocacy help prepare our bachelor of science in nursing students to assume leadership roles. We are incredibly proud of Robert and anticipate he will continue to be a compelling voice for nursing and patient care in the future," said Dr. Barbara Haas, UT Tyler School of Nursing Executive Director.

A senior nursing major, Ramos is past secretary/treasurer of the Texas Student Nurses' Association and actively involved with the UT Tyler Palestine Campus Student Nurses' Association chapter.

Insight, Inspiration on a Global Scale." New officers were installed during the closing session of the House of Delegates meeting and will serve one term.
