Two New AACN-CDC Fellowship Opportunities in Older Adult Fall Prevention and Occupational Safety and Health

AACN is pleased to announce a new fellowship opportunity focused on clinical older adult fall prevention through the CDC’s Division of Unintentional Injury Prevention (DUIP). Funded by the CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), this fellowship provides the opportunity to work with a national organization on high profile research and evaluation projects that will result in measurable health impact.  The fellow can expect to develop expertise in designing epidemiologic studies, analyzing data, giving oral presentations, writing scientific papers, and communicating technical content for lay and other specific audiences.  This fellowship opportunity is open to Doctoral-level prepared nurses looking to prevent falls among older adults (Note: active doctoral students using this fellowship as a practicum component of their curriculum are eligible).  This fellowship term is a 12-month period beginning in July 2018 and is located at CDC headquarters in Atlanta, GA.  View the fellowship announcement for background, eligibility, and application information. 

The second new fellowship opportunity focused on occupational safety and health through the CDC’s National Personal Protective Technology Laboratory (NPPTL). Funded by the CDC’s National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), this fellowship provides the opportunity to work with a national organization on a project that will monitor personal protective equipment (PPE) usage as it relates to hazards within a hospital setting.  The fellow will assist in all aspects of the clinical research from design to implementation, including survey design, preparation of regulatory material, collecting and analyzing data, and contributing to translational science.  This fellowship opportunity is open to Master’s level nurses, including recent and soon-to-be spring 2018 graduates looking to gain valuable experience working on a very high profile project between CDC/NIOSH and partnering stakeholders.  This fellowship term is a 12-month period beginning in July 2018 and is located at NIOSH headquarters in Pittsburgh, PA.  View the fellowship announcement for background, eligibility, and application information.

Applications for both fellowships are due Friday, February 2, 2018.  Visit the AACN-CDC Public Health Fellowship Program webpage or contact the CDC Project Manager Allison Jacobs at ajacobs@aacnnursing.org
