Fellows Program

*APPLICATION WINDOW OPENING JUNE 1, 2O19*

The purpose of the Fellows  Program is to maximize the value of our NIHD member benefits by recognizing and advancing those leaders who have made significant and sustainable contributions to nursing, health care, healthcare design and NIHD over the years.  In addition to documenting certain minimum education, experience and certification requirements, Fellow applicants will also be asked to submit a personal statement, plus  letters of recommendations, that describes their contributions to nursing, health care, healthcare design and NIHD.  

The Board plans to announce the second class of Fellows at the NIHD membership meeting at 2019 Healthcare Design Expo + Conference in New Orleans, LA.  Please join us in recognizing and celebrating you - our members and leaders - as part of the new NIHD Fellows Program.  More information can be found HERE.
