Global Nursing Fellowship


The Department of Nursing’s Global Nursing Fellowship is a unique two-year fellowship open to nurses currently employed at Boston Children’s Hospital. The fellowship provides structure, funding and protected time for nurses to develop leadership skills and expand professional nursing experience through the development, implementation and evaluation of high-quality, high-impact global health projects. Fellows have the opportunity for clinical training in low resource settings, and experiential learning in the development, management and evaluation of programs and projects to improve child health and promote quality nursing care in resource limited settings. Administrative and financial support is provided by the BCH Global Health Program.
