Join a community of nurse leaders with the AONE Nurse Director Fellowship. The only program of its kind, the fellowship program seeks to support the IOM Future of Nursing recommendation to prepare and enable nurses to lead change to advance health.
What to expect
The Nurse Director Fellowship is a year-long professional development program designed to provide an in-depth environment of learning. Participants strengthen their current skills, acquire new competencies and continue life-long learning needed for the next generation of successful nurse executives.
Who should apply?
The 2017 application period has passed. Fellowship participants come from various practice settings that provide direct patient/client care across the care continuum. Applicants should have a minimum of one year experience as a nurse director. Job title is not the determining factor, but rather the role and responsibilities of the applicant's position as detailed in the current job description.
The director role is a level of management support and leadership between managers and executive level leadership. The individual is accountable for the planning, directing and coordinating the operations of multiple units/departments or service lines in support of the strategic direction of nursing and the organization.
Requirements & Tuition
Participants must invest the time and energy needed to complete all components of the fellowship program. Attendance at all face-to-face retreats is mandatory. The $7,500 tuition is due upon acceptance as a fellow and includes all course materials, onsite meeting fees and registration fees for both the AONE Annual Meeting, AHA Health Forum Summit, and AONE Advocacy Day. The fellow is responsible for all additional expenses including travel, accommodations and meals not provided during the meeting sessions.

All cancellations and withdrawals must be submitted in writing. For cancellations or withdrawals received on or before January 10, 2018, tuition will be returned, less a processing fee of 10 percent. As of January 11, 2018, no refunds will be made.
