Anna Diané and Jennifer Etienne have been awarded the prestigious Hausman Fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital. This summer, these 2 Keys to Inclusive Leadership in Nursing (KILN) scholars will participate in a summer program that pairs students with nurse preceptors who provide a variety of learning experiences that facilitate the transition from student to professional nurse. 

According to MGH:

The Hausman Nursing Fellowship reflects Massachusetts General Hospital's commitment to minority nursing students. The fellows will be assigned a minority nurse preceptor who will work collaboratively to manage encounters with patients and families and who will assist the fellows in building a body of personal nursing experience, both inpatient and outpatient. Fellows have opportunities to develop collegial relationships with staff nurses at all levels from clinical nurse to advanced practitioner. Within the variety of experiences available at MGH, each Fellow will be able to select an area of primary interest. This will afford an opportunity to witness the unique contributions of each member of the interdisciplinary care team to an integrated approach within a patient care area. These clinical experiences are intended to energize and inform the Fellows' future nursing practice.
