NAM Scholar-in-Residence

National Academy of Medicine Nurse Scholar-in-Residence 

The National Academy of Medicine (NAM)’s Distinguished Nurse Scholar-in-Residence program provides a year-long residential leadership opportunity in health policy in Washington, DC. Designed for mid-career professionals, this immersion experience supports engagement of nurse leaders in a prominent role in health policy at the national level and facilitates their interaction with other health fellows and scholars. The American Academy of Nursing (Academy), the American Nurses Association (ANA), and the American Nurses Foundation (the Foundation), in partnership with NAM, support this program. The program seeks individuals who have the capacity and skills to generate policy for issues of special interest and the ability to promote greater public understanding. Applicants with diverse backgrounds and demonstrated success in promoting health equity are strongly encouraged to apply. Applications are not currently being accepted. An announcement will be made when the next application cycle opens.
