Fellowship Programs

In an effort to increase the workforce of specialty trained practitioners providing high quality, evidence-based safe patient care, post-graduate training programs for Nurse Practitioners (NPs) are gaining momentum. While not required for practice, post-graduate programs build upon the entry-level competencies and national certifications to provide clinicians with additional management strategies.

The terms “residency” and “fellowship” have been used to describe these programs which are gaining popularity not only for new graduates, but for practicing clinicians who desire additional specialty training in various areas of medicine including emergency and critical care.  Based upon current evidence, the national NP community has suggested that the term “fellowship” is best used to describe these programs which are offered as an optional post-graduate training and not required for certification or licensure.

The existing postgraduate programs for emergency care listed below have many similarities.  A small number of students are accepted for training that is interdisciplinary in nature, with simultaneous admission and training of NP’s and Physician Assistants (PAs).  The average program length is 12 months, with curricula consisting of didactic and clinical experiences among varied specialty areas (e.g, critical care, cardiology, orthopedics).  Specialized training typically includes advanced airway management, emergency ultrasound, and advanced life support courses (ACLS, ATLS , PALS) .
