Hello everyone! I am a senior nursing student about to graduate in August. I have been really loving nursing school so far and am excited to become a registered nurse! Lately, my non-nursing major friends have been talking on and on about the exciting opportunities they have such as applying for fellowships and other such opportunities for when they graduate and I was just wondering if anyone knew of any programs for nurses.
I am not necessarily interested in international travel specifically, but I would love to know of any career advancement opportunities anyone knew of for a young nurse hoping to eventually work in L&D or fertility! I know this is a vague question but I would love any career advice anyone has.
Thank you all!

Nursing does have various internships/residencies/fellowships available for new graduate nurses. Most major teaching hospitals offer them. I'm not sure what region you are in, but take a look around at nearby hospitals to see if they have any programs in place for new grads. some may require you already have your license and some will just accept the GN permit.
