The Legacy of Past Fellows
Our fellows have worked with faculty researchers and scientists doing ground breaking work in a spectrum of nursing areas including translation science, nurse managed healthcare centers, clinical practice, adolescent sexual health behaviors, and gene mutations that lead to cancer to name only a few. And there is no better testament to the ways in which these experiences open a door to an exemplary career than our past fellows who are now in the field becoming nurse leaders in their own right.
