The Primary Care PNP fellowship at Nemours Children's Hospital, Delaware is a twelve-month program incorporating continuity clinic in primary care and clinic rotations through most major pediatric subspecialties.
Weekly fellowship conferences, pediatric grand rounds, and many other didactic offerings support the fellow’s continued training in pediatrics.
PNP fellows are paired with a primary care nurse practitioner mentor and preceptor and work in the same primary care location for the full twelve months.
Postgraduate training programs for Advanced Practice Nurses are growing. The intent of the fellowship is to provide a year-long, postgraduate training experience that allows for protected learning time, exposure to pediatric subspecialties and a primary care continuity clinic. The successful fellow will gradually increase their clinic template (number of patients seen per day) each quarter, for a gradual progression over the year to a standard pediatric primary care patient schedule.
