Advanced Clinical Practice Fellowships

The Advanced Clinical Practice Fellowship (ACPF) program provides registered nurses (RN) and nurse practitioners (NP) the opportunity to have a focused self-directed learning experience to develop clinical, leadership or best practice guideline implementation knowledge and skills, 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.
