Apply now: Hospice and Palliative Care Nurse Practitioner Fellowship

January 11, 2021  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

The Hospice and Palliative Nurse Practitioner (NP) fellowship training program at Michigan Medicine is now accepting applications!

The purpose of this fellowship is to promote excellence in palliative care education, to develop experts in the field and to ensure patients with serious illness receive evidence-based, high-quality patient-centered care.

This one-year comprehensive post-graduate fellowship program will allow new graduates and experienced nurse practitioners to acquire clinical expertise in hospice and palliative care through a variety of clinical, educational and research opportunities during their training.

The fellowship curriculum consists of clinical, educational and scholarly/research experiences to meet the objectives of the program and to address the particular career interests of the Hospice and Palliative NP fellow. The fellowship provides the opportunity to collaborate with interdisciplinary clinicians such as physicians, psychology, social work, chaplaincy and pharmacy.

Hospice and Palliative NP Fellows will be supported through curriculum and clinical experiences to accomplish national certifications or credentials in palliative care with the goal of Advanced Certified Hospice and Palliative Nurse (ACHPN) certification within one year of completion of the program. At the end of the program, the NP Fellow will possess expertise in hospice and palliative care to continue to work in the area or apply to other areas of practice.

Applications are open and must be received by Feb. 8. Selected fellows will be notified by April 1 and the program officially begins July 1.
