EAST Fellow Program Nominations

Due August 1, 2019

The Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma (EAST) in collaboration with the Society of Trauma Nurses (STN) has established a Nurse Fellowship program.

The purpose of the program is to provide exposure of trauma nurses to the EAST Annual Scientific Assembly, taking place January 14-18, 2020 at the Loews Sapphire Falls Resort in Orlando, Florida, and to gain access to key leaders in trauma care.

The Nurse Fellow will be supported for travel, hotel and registration fees made possible by donations to the EAST Development Fund. The successful candidate(s) will be assigned a mentor who will assist the fellow with designing a plan for programs to attend and interviews with leaders. Daily, the Nurse Fellow will write a “news brief” or “blog” that will be sent out via electronic blasts and highlight programs and events from the day. The Fellow will also author an editorial that will be run in the Journal of Trauma Nursing following the meeting to summarize their experience and put out call for future Nurse Fellows. Mentoring from the JTN Editorial Review Board will be provided. The Nurse Fellow will be introduced during the Scientific Assembly and at both the STN Networking Reception and the EAST Awards Ceremony.

The call for nominations will close on August 1, 2019 and selected candidate(s) will be notified by September 19, 2019 and announced later that month. Click here to submit a nomination.
