Dr. Bette Cozart of the PVAMU College of Nursing was recently recognized in the Houston Chronicle’s “Salute to Nurses” special section.
Cozart is an assistant clinical professor of nursing and a registered nurse. She was nominated for the honor by her students because of her genuine, compassionate nature. Cozart shared with the Chronicle that she teaches her students that acceptance and cultural sensitivity are essential to their craft.
Also in the special Salute to Nurses section, PVAMU Nursing student Victoria Jones was highlighted as a scholarship winner.
The senior nursing student received the scholarship thanks to her scholastic achievements and “exceptional promise” as a nurse. Upon graduation in December, Jones will be commissioned as an officer in the United States Army.
