Nurse Manager Fellowship

The AONL Nurse Manager Fellowship is the first of its kind program to target the unique leadership development needs of nurse managers. The fellowship incorporates the Nurse Manager Learning Domain Framework, developed by AONL.

What to Expect

The Nurse Manager Fellowship is a year-long professional development program designed to provide an in-depth environment of learning. The fellowship program seeks to prepare and enable nurses to lead change to advance health. Participants strengthen their current skills, master new competencies and continue the life-long learning needed for the next generation of successful nurse leaders.

Who should apply?

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 in person retreats is mandatory. The program fee includes all course materials, onsite meeting fees and registration fees for the AONL Annual Meeting, AHA Health Forum Summit, and AONL Advocacy Day. The fellow is responsible for all additional expenses including travel, accommodations and meals not provided during the meeting sessions.

2019 application period has passed. 2020 application period will open in June.
