An assistant nursing professor at St. Xavier University has been awarded a nurse educator fellowship from the Illinois Board of Higher Education.
Mary S. Haras recently received a $9,061 fellowship to support her study of perceptions of nephrology nurses toward advance care planning for patients with chronic kidney disease.
Haras, of Chicago, will use the fellowship money toward completing her doctorate in nursing at Mennonite College of Nursing at Illinois State University.
Haras is a nurse practitioner in Evergreen Park, and serves as an American Nephrology Nurses Association project director. She is an active member of the association.
