Experienced nurses bring a wealth of knowledge and training into the clinical environment. However, as a nurse progresses through their career, the desire to transition from one clinical setting to another may feel overwhelming and intimidating. This is the primary reason why the Children’s Health℠ RN Fellowship program was created. The program aims to support experienced nurses seeking to grow in their clinical practice by transitioning into a new specialty. This is achieved through targeted didactic courses, high-fidelity simulation, or mentoring to gain competence and confidence in their new role, the Children’s Health℠ RN Fellowship program is designed to provide the best opportunities for pediatric nurses.
The RN Fellowship Program is for experienced (1 year+) clinical RNs looking to change specialties. Whether you're looking to move from adults to pediatrics, or from any clinical setting into a critical care, cardiology, hematology, or oncology setting, our RN Fellowship Program is designed to assist you on that journey and help you grow within your nursing career.
RN Fellowship at Children's Health is a 6-month program for BSN prepared nurses who wish to change their specialty of practice.
Through this program, you will:
- Complete didactic courses to care for pediatric care
