The GW Nursing Center for Health Policy and Media Engagement supports the professional development of journalists interested in reporting on nursing, healthcare workforce, and related issues. The Media Fellowship Program is designed to aid early career health journalists to improve their understanding and media coverage of these important topics. This 8-month, non-residential fellowship provides an opportunity to work with some of the top health journalists, health policy, and nursing workforce experts, hone reporting and production skills, engage in cross-platform reporting, and contribute to the national conversation about health care delivery challenges in the years ahead, Veteran health journalist Liz Seegert directs the program.
Previous fellows have produced long and short-form print, video and audio stories on topics as diverse as the role of nurses on a cardiac care team, the shortage of school nurses in rural Kentucky, and how APRNs are stepping up to fill the primary care shortage gap in at-risk communities.
Journalists with five years or less of professional reporting experience and a strong interest in investigating the role of nurses in the health care system are welcome to apply.
An application form and criteria will be posted soon.
