The Long Term Care Nurse Fellowship Program is a career opportunity open to new graduate nurses or nurses who are new to the post-acute long-term care field. The Long Term Fellowship Program provides specialized education, support, and mentorship to nurses while they transition to clinical practice. The Program is a nine-month supplement to the traditional organization and unit orientation. One of the primary goals of the Fellowship is to develop the nurse s critical thinking to enhance delivery of high quality care.

The Long Term Care Nurse Fellowship Program is offered through the ArchCare Workforce Investment Organization and the Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing at New York University Rory Meyers College of Nursing. The learning content is focused on the special needs of adults and older adults receiving long term care in nursing facilities, home care, or Programs for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE).

Is the Nurse Fellowship a paid position?

Yes. Nurse Fellows are paid the same as a newly hired nurse. Salary can be discussed with our Human Resource Department.

What is the difference between being hired as a Nurse Fellow and being hired as a Nurse at ArchCare?

The Nurse Fellowship Program is a transition to practice program, similar to nurse residency programs. They are designed for the newly graduated nurse or the nurse who is a novice in the field of post-acute long term care. The Nurse Fellow will benefit from a structured evidenced-based training program and strong mentorship. Research has shown that transition to practice programs, such as our Nurse Fellowship Program improves patient outcomes.

What will the schedule be for the Nurse Fellow following the traditional orientation?

Once the Nurse Fellow completes the traditional orientation the Nurse Fellow will work full-time. The Nurse Fellow will continue to work with a preceptor and will advance in the patient care responsibilities as assessed by the Nurse Preceptor, Nurse Supervisor, and Nurse Fellowship Director. There will be time built in to the Nurse Fellow s schedule to attend classes and other program events.
