The opportunity is open to all RNs meeting the requirements including current hospital RNs, HSHS Southern Illinois Division RNs and the public.

“We are privileged to offer this special Critical Care Fellowship opportunity for nurses of our region,” shared Elizabeth Govero, MSN, RN, Chief Nursing Officer for St. Elizabeth’s Hospital. “The objective of the program is to attract nurses who have the desire to work in specialty care areas, but do not yet have the necessary experience.”

Participants of the program will work for one year on the Progressive Care Unit at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital to build their skills. After successful completion of the Fellowship Program, they will be eligible to transfer to specialty units including the emergency department or critical care unit. During the year-long program, the RNs will receive special classes, training and orientation to prepare them for serving patients and families in the ED or CCU.
