Welcome to the ElPasoMOAA.org Website!


       As we enter the third quarter of the fiscal year, I would like to bring to the attention of the El Paso/Fort Bliss Community, that your MOAA Chapter will celebrate it’s 60th Anniversary in June 2016. That’s right…your El Paso MOAA Chapter has been running strong for 60 years, since its establishment in 1956. MOAA National has been in existence for 86 years, and the El Paso Chapter remains one of the oldest chapters in the great state of Texas. Your El Paso Chapter with more than 350 local members, has been recognized as a “Five Star Chapter” for the past 16 consecutive years, and we just received our latest Five Star Chapter recognition at the recent Annual meeting of the membership in Orlando Florida. We hope you will choose to celebrate the 60th Anniversary with us in June.

As a reminder, MOAA National recently transitioned leadership of the MOAA President and CEO duties from VADM Norb Ryan toLt Gen Dana Atkins. With that transition, MOAA has also developed a new theme, “Never Stop Serving”. Finally, it is worth pointing our that in 2015, “The Hill” newspaper, recognized MOAA as the only Veterans Service Organization (VS)), among the Top 50 Lobbyist organizations in Washington D.C. This was the ninth year in a row that MOAA has received this distinction. View More

SUBJECT: Clinical Nurse Transition Program Sets Nurses ahead

William Beaumont Army Medical Center – William Beaumont Army Medical Center hosted a graduating ceremony for Class 15-152 of the Brig. Gen. Anna Mae Hays Clinical Nurses Transition Program Dec. 8.

The six-month-long program allows new nurses to gain experience as a surgical-medical nurse while working alongside experienced nurses, who mentor the new nurses in hands-on procedures.

“The CNTP is a program for new nurses who have already graduated from a nursing program to get a good foundation before working on their own,” said 2nd Lt. Lizamara C. Bedolla, a graduate of CNTP. “It’s like a residency program for doctors.”
Throughout the program, nurses learned advanced nursing topics such as pain management, ethical decisions, physiology-type techniques and critical-thinking skills.

 “It advances their professional development and helps them understand ‘I need to keep educating myself if I want to stay current in practice,’” said Dr. Thomas H. Miller, CNTP director. “They’re all brand new 2nd lieutenants that have finished nursing school.”

The program provides opportunities for new nurses to gain hands-on experience and repetitive practice, Miller said. Other projects include an evidence-based practice project which helps nurses examine research and analyze whether new practices should be implemented at WBAMC.
“We just don’t do things the old-fashioned way. We need to keep looking at the future because there are always new ideas,” Miller said. Continued
