21 accomplished nurses were chosen from 138 applicants for a sought-after fellowship sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The RWJF Executive Nurse Fellows Program offers a 3-year fellowship designed to expand nurse leadership who will help lead change in the United States health care system.
“The RWJF Executive Nurse Fellows program is building and enhancing the leadership skills of extraordinary nurses around the country,” says co-director Linda Cronenwett. “Our alumni are a virtual ‘who’s who’ of accomplished nurses, and we know that the 2011 cohort will join them in doing great things.”
Fellows come from senior leadership positions in health organizations, universities, think tanks and community-based organizations and continue in their current positions during the fellowships. The fellowship supports the development of a new initiative to improve health care delivery in the Fellow’s community.
