The AONE Nurse Manager Fellowship is the first of its kind program to step up the level of existing education and development for nurse managers. The fellowship incorporates the Nurse Manager Learning Domain Framework, developed by AONE.

What to expect

The Nurse Manager Fellowship is a year-long professional development program designed to provide an in-depth environment of learning.  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.  Participants strengthen their current skills, acquire new competencies and continue life-long learning needed for the next generation of successful nurse leaders.

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 manager. Job title is not the determining factor, but rather the role and responsibilities of the applicant’s position as detailed in a current job description.

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.

Cancellations and Withdrawals
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.
