National Nursing Centers Consortium (NNCC), an affiliate of Public Health Management Corporation (PHMC), announced its initial cohort for the Carpenter Community Nursing Fellowship, an introductory and competitive fellowship program in community-based and public health nursing for current and recently graduated nursing students of all levels. The program is supported by a grant from the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation.
Fellows will be introduced to the diverse world of public health nursing and career opportunities available in the expanding field of community-based care, which includes nurse-managed and retail health clinics. The curriculum includes best practices of current leaders, technical instruction and important policy shaping healthcare initiatives. Site visits will provide opportunities to interact with current nursing professionals and experience the innovative ideas that are changing the face of healthcare. As part of this experience, participants will have the chance to network with nurse leaders, policy makers, staff at NNCC, members of nurse-managed health clinics and nurse leaders in retail health clinics.
