Registed Nurses' Association of Ontario

How it Works

Identify a "need" or a "gap" in the current services being provided at a health care organization in Ontario.

  1. Determine the focus or topic/specialty area of your fellowship – it will need to be an area of interest to you, where you will increase your personal skills, knowledge and expertise to help improve patient care and outcomes at your organization.
  2. Identify a primary mentor specializing in the chosen focus/topic area, and obtaining support from the sponsoring organization.
  3. Develop your proposal. Enter your responses directly into the RFP document. Attend an informational and proposal writing workshop.
  4. Submit your proposal.

The standard financial contribution for each Fellowship is $20,000 ($15,000 in funding is provided by the RNAO (through funding from Government of Ontario) and a minimum of $5,000 in funding is provided by the Sponsor Organization).

All three participants/stakeholders (fellow, mentor and Sponsor Organization) should be involved in the proposal development and in determining which type of fellowship should be proposed. Each stakeholder will have responsibilities and obligations, as well as positive expected outcomes from the fellowship.
