The RN Fellowship Program provides specialty classroom training, simulation experiences, and hands-on clinical orientation with strong preceptor, educator, and leadership support. The program also features bimonthly seminars topics related to professional development in your specialty area. RN Fellows are given the opportunity to impact clinical practice by completing an evidence based practice project, which is presented at cohort graduation. After graduation, RN Fellows are encouraged to continue their professional journey in their specialty area by achieving specialty certification – this is supported by a complimentary specialty certification review course at the end of the program for all RN Fellowship graduates. Other benefits include tuition support for the RN-BSN degree, and eligibility for a program completion bonus.
Internal candidates who are interested in a specialty, especially our procedural areas such as OR, CVI/IR, PACU, are encouraged to speak with their Nurse Manager about shadowing a nurse on that unit to “walk in their shoes” and see if the unit is a right fit for them.
