Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Fellowship

Program Overview

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.


Nemours PNP Fellowship FAQs:

What is the goal of the fellowship?

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.

Must I graduate from my program before I apply?

No, you do not. You will need to complete board examination and licensure prior to the start date of the fellowship, but you may apply before you complete the program.

What is the start date of the fellowship?

The start date is either October 1 or November 1. The start date is selected based on accepted candidates program completion and ability to obtain licensure. However, the start date will not be later than November 1, so all requirements must be completed by that date.

How many fellows are in each cohort?

We place two fellows each year.

Is this a paid fellowship?

Yes, as an APRN fellow at Nemours Children's Hospital, Delaware, you will be paid an entry level APRN salary with full benefits.

Do you interview candidates for the fellowship?

Candidates for interviews will be selected following review of application materials. Interviews occur in July and early August.

Must I sign an employment contract if I'm accepted?

No, we do not require fellows to sign a commitment to work for Nemours following the fellowship. It is our hope, however, that our fellows will remain with Nemours after completion of the fellowship. Employment following the fellowship is not guaranteed.
