The Foundation's Clinical Nurse Scholars Program supports two-year, post-doctoral fellowships to prepare a cadre of nurse faculty for leadership in the care of hospital patients with serious illness and injuries.This is one of three training sites for the Clinical Nurse Scholars Program. Nine Scholars are appointed annually, three at each site, for two years. The fellowship is tailored to the individual interests of each Scholar and involves a team of preceptors from nursing, medicine, and management. At the completion of the Program, each Scholar should have acquired increased clinical competence in care of patients with complex problems; integrative and collaborative skills to improve medical and nursing outcomes for acutely ill patients; ability to provide useful consultation to nurses and physicians regarding nursing care of patients and nursing problems; experience in the conduct of credible clinical nursing research; an appreciation of the complexity of an administrative/management role in a hospital; and fulfillment of the Scholar's individual goals. Program graduates are expected to pursue careers in academic settings where they can serve as role models to their students.
