Advanced Clinical Practice Fellowships

The Advanced Clinical Practice Fellowship (ACPF) program provides the opportunity for registered nurses (RN) and nurse practitioners (NP) to develop their skills, knowledge, and expertise while advancing a project that will meet a need or gap in service within their organizations, with support from a mentor(s), the organization where the RN/NP is employed and RNAO.

This initiative is aimed at developing and promoting nursing knowledge and expertise, and improving client care and health outcomes in Ontario. Clients are defined as individuals, families, groups or communities.

The length of the program is 12 weeks (full-time) or 20 weeks (part-time) for a total of 450 hours.
