Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences offers a 12-month postgraduate Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant Critical Care Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Jacksonville, Florida. The program trains the highly qualified graduate nurse practitioner (NP) or physician assistant (PA) to become a skilled, compassionate and efficient critical care provider.
The curriculum contains diverse didactic instruction and direct patient care clinical experience embedded in the foundation of Mayo Clinic: excellence in patient care, education and research. This program provides NPs or PAs with the training needed to deliver the highest quality care to critically ill or injured patients.
Completion and certification
After successfully completing this fellowship, you receive a certificate of completion from Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences.
The fellowship will not be accredited in its initial year. Once the program graduates its first NP or PA, the program will seek accreditation from both nurse practitioner and physician assistant national organizations.
