Society of Trauma Nurses - EAST Nurse Fellow Program

EAST in collaboration with the Society of Trauma Nurses (STN) has established a Nurse Fellow program. 

The purpose of the program is to provide exposure of trauma nurses to the EAST Annual Scientific Assembly and gain access to key leaders in trauma care. The Nurse Fellow will be supported for travel, hotel and registration fees made possible by donations to the EAST Development Fund. The successful candidate(s) will be assigned a mentor who will assist the fellow with designing a plan for programs to attend and interviews with leaders. Daily the Nurse Fellow will write a “news brief” that will be sent out via electronic blasts and highlight programs and events from the day. The Fellow will also author an editorial that will be run in the Journal of Trauma Nursing following the meeting to summarize their experience and put out call for future Nurse Fellows. Mentoring from the JTN Editorial Review Board will be provided. 

Apply - Deadline August 1, 2022

Applications for the 2023 Nurse Fellow are OPEN. The application deadline is August 1, 2022.
