Attention Nurses: The Alliance of Nurses for a Healthy Environment (ANHE) is offering a fellowship opportunity. The ANHE Fellowship is designed to increase nurses’ capacity to assess and address environmental health issues, with a focus on community-level impact and solutions to advance health equity for those disproportionately affected by environmental hazards. The Fellowship is a year-long experience including environmental health education to gain a more thorough understanding of how environmental risks impact human health, as well as advocacy and community engagement basics. The program is open to all nurses, even those with very little to no experience working to promote community health. Through mentored learning, fellows are provided support throughout the program so that nurses with all levels of experience can learn and find value in participation in the program. While there is a small time commitment, the program is structured with flexibility built in to accommodate the fellows’ schedules.

Three nurse fellows will be selected from each of the 10 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regions (total of 30 fellows). Learn more about the ANHE Fellowship, criteria for applicants, and how to apply here. The application deadline is March 31st. Please contact Cara Cook at cara@envirn.org for any questions.
