To date, more than 47 fellows across nursing and patient services, as well as national and international participants, have participated. Throughout their two- year journey, fellows create a scholarly project that contributes to the science of pediatric nursing. On a quarterly basis, they share their progress with peers, mentors and Boston Children’s senior clinical leadership. Once completed, their work is disseminated through meetings and publications.
