Doyenne Nursing

Coming soon

Doyenne Initiative’s mini-fellowship for nursing is meant to support and boost the presence of women in nursing in the Houston, Texas region. By partnering with the University of Houston and the medical personnel recruitment company, Medical Edge Recruitment, the Doyenne Initiative seeks to provide financial support to our health care fellows, provide leadership training that will support them throughout their careers and connecting our fellows with high-level job placements upon their graduation. 


The University of Houston, being in the community in which Doyenne Initiative and Medical Edge Recruitment’s main offices are based and being one of the most diverse campuses in the nation, was a natural partner for the nursing fellowship program. 


Through the elevation of female nurses, we hope to inspire a generation of female medical professionals who are inspired by our fellows.

The Vital Role of Women in Nursing

Women play an indispensable role in the field of nursing, a profession that stands at the heart of health care. As the majority in the workforce, women in nursing not only provide essential patient care but also bring unique perspectives that enhance health outcomes and improve patient satisfaction. Their empathetic approach and comprehensive understanding of both physical and emotional needs are critical in managing diverse health scenarios. Embracing the strengths that women bring to nursing can help meet the growing demand for health services and ensure a resilient healthcare system.
