Hartford Hospital is one of the largest and most respected teaching hospitals in New England. We are a Level 1 Trauma Center that provides cutting edge treatment to its patients. This is made possible by being home to the largest robotic surgery center in the Northeast and the Center for Education, Simulation and Innovation (CESI), one of the most-advanced medical simulation training centers in the world. When hospitals cannot provide the advanced care, expertise and new treatment options their patients require, they turn to us.

The Fellowship will enhance the student’s education through direct observation of patient care and exposure to cardiovascular nursing responsibilities.  Opportunities to attend relevant internal educational programs and meetings with staff members at Hartford Hospital will provide additional learning experiences for the nursing student.  The fellows have the opportunity to apply for positions at Hartford Hospital in a cardiovascular nursing unit upon graduation.
