Carolyn Montoya, MSN, PNP, RN, and Jim Stapleton MSN, FNP, RN, received this year’s Aladino and Nellie Matteucci Faculty Fellowship.

The Matteucci Faculty Fellowship is awarded annually. Candidates must prepare applications detailing how their proposed work will benefit and advance the College of Nursing ’ s goals, particularly the commitment to enhancing education.

Montoya and Stapleton chose to allocate the award to the purchase of an otoacoustic emission machine to test children’ s hearing.  The machine will be used at the UNM Faculty Practice Clinic, Child Care Center and at various locations in and around Albuquerque where students enrolled in pediatric courses will conduct physical exams.

Nellie Matteucci served the Albuquerque community as a registered nurse. Upon her death in 2001, she left a large sum to UNM ’s College of Nursing and with that endowment, the Faculty Fellowship was created in name of Nellie and her late husband, Aladino.
