Theresa Mottes, pediatric nurse practitioner in Renal Services, was recently elected president of the Nephrology Nursing Certification Commission (NNCC), an organization established in 1987 to develop and implement certification examinations for nephrology nursing. The goal of NNCC is to promote the highest standards of nephrology nursing practice through the development, implementation, coordination, and evaluation of all aspects of the certification and re-certification process.
As part of her introduction in April 2019, Theresa was described as a dedicated leader with more than 25 years of pediatric renal replacement therapy experience and a passionate volunteer advocate for nephrology certification. Theresa also is an adjunct instructor with Baylor College of Medicine.
The NNCC is composed of nine Commissioners: eight with current experience and expertise in nephrology nursing and one public member. Officers of the NNCC include the President, President-Elect, Secretary and Treasurer.
