KENNESAW, GA- Two master students of Kennesaw State University, Faith Chapman and Clay Roelle participated in the fellowship at Spine Center Atlanta.

Previously, students were encouraged to submit their application for the fellowship at the behest of KSU clinical assistant professor of nursing Alex Giles as he maintains professional connections at Spine Center Atlanta.

“They are both absolute rock stars—definitely representative of the best the Wellstar College of Health and Human Services has to offer. They’re getting invaluable experience and have distinguished themselves in the constantly challenging environment at a specialty medical facility,” said Giles.

Chapman and Roelle got experience in orthopedics, pain management as well as other areas of medical practice through the fellowship. In this fellowship, they observed surgeries, treated patients who suffer from orthopedic issues as well as assisted providers in their day-to-day duties.

In December they will graduate from the Wellstar School of Nursing with Master of Science in Nursing degrees specializing in primary care nurse practitioners or family nurse practitioners (FNPs).

Chapman and Roelle will have to spend their 630 hours time in clinical settings getting practical experience for four semesters.

Roelle was a graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from KSU in 2019. Following his graduation, he became an emergency room nurse at Northside Hospital in Canton for two years.

Roelle said that he thought the ability to see a vast population starting from birth to death was a major advantage for job marketability. For someone that wanted to add their education but did not have their hearts set on one particular thing, becoming an FNP was a great option.
