Deadline Extended! New AACN-CDC Fellowship Opportunities in Occupational Safety and Health

AACN is extending the deadline to apply for a 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 the fellowship are due Friday, February 23, 2018.  Visit the AACN-CDC Public Health Fellowship Program webpage or contact the CDC Project Manager Allison Jacobs at ajacobs@aacnnursing.org.
