Program Description

The UCSF Surgical and Critical Care Fellowship Program is recognized by the ANCC Practice Transition Accreditation Program® (PTAP) as an Industry-Recognized Apprenticeship Program (IRAP).

The UCSF Surgical and Critical Care Nurse Practitioner Fellowship is a joint program of the departments of surgery and anesthesia and UCSF Medical Center.

The program is also the first critical care program for advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) in California, and the first surgical APRN program in the country to earn the Accreditation with Distinction designation from the ANCC.

The fellowship program is designed to expand upon the knowledge and skills acquired during graduate nursing training. It prepares licensed and certified AG-ACNPs to provide care to adults in critical care and surgical settings through focused clinical rotations. It also emphasizes the development of advanced assessment, planning, negotiation and collaboration skills and is fortified by critical care skills workshops and quality improvement projects.

UCSF is a recognized world leader in developing innovative solutions to health care delivery problems. This culture of innovation has led to the development of a new UCSF NP Fellowship to address the ongoing need for qualified hematology and oncology advanced practice providers.

Cancer Center NP Fellows will be mentored by seasoned UCSF hematology and oncology nurse practitioners with oversight by UCSF’s associate chief of advanced practice and a distinguished roster of faculty with input from Cancer Center leadership and stakeholders.
