The College of Nursing is committed to expanding and strengthening university-community engagement locally and globally in support of USF’s strategic priorities. Our goal is to engage with the community and to provide nursing resources through partnerships and scholarly projects. This includes several community outreach grant opportunities developed in collaboration with the other areas of the college. Current community partnerships are listed below:
One example of our community outreach efforts is the Peds to Succeed program.
The USF College of Nursing collaborates with our clinical
partners to develop, accredit, and evaluate fellowships for advanced practice
providers, to include both nurse practitioners and physician assistants. Each Advanced
Practice Provider Fellowship is uniquely created to ensure that new nurse
practitioners and physician assistants have the training and education to
successfully transition from academia to a specialty clinical practice. The
overarching goal is to increase the number of specialty trained practitioners
to develop the competency necessary to deliver high-quality, evidence-based,
and safe patient care. The average fellowship program is 12 months in length,
with curricula consisting of didactic and clinical experiences in varied
specialty areas (e.g., neurosurgery, oncology, and otolaryngology).
For eligibility requirements and deadlines for the following fellowships, contact Marcia Johansson.

Faculty practice opportunities are available at the Student Health Center, as well as throughout the community. Please contact the office of the vice dean of Faculty and Community Affairs for more details if interested.
Our team is eager to discuss partnership opportunities with you. Please contact us with any ideas or questions you may have.
