Dear Members,
This communication is forwarded to you with permission from Allison Squires. To communicate with Allison, please contact her directly at

Dear Nursing Colleagues,

I would like to highly encourage you to nominate or apply for the Yale
World Fellows Program ( I had the privilege
of being part of the program in 2003 and to date, remain the only nurse to
have participated in the program. I would prefer some company! Selected
applicants join a network of over 250 individuals from 81 countries. Your
class year spends a paid 4 month semester at Yale in an intensive
leadership development program.

Ideal candidates are working at a national or regional level in their home
countries and are solidly mid-career. Candidates from countries not yet
represented in the program are highly desired. From the application
website ( ... applicants):


· *BE IN THE MID-CAREER STAGE* Fellows are at least five, and
typically not more than twenty, years into their careers, with demonstrated
work accomplishments, and a clear indication of future contributions and
excellence. The average age of a World Fellow is 39, though there is no
minimum or maximum age limit.

· *BE FLUENT IN ENGLISH* An excellent command of the English
language is essential.

· *BE A CITIZEN OF A COUNTRY OTHER THAN THE UNITED STATES* While dual citizens are eligible, preference is given to candidates whose work is focused outside the US.


· An established record of extraordinary achievement and integrity;

· Commitment to engagement in crucial issues and to making a
difference at the national or international level;

· Promise of a future career of leadership and notable impact;

· Special capacity for critical, creative, entrepreneurial, and
strategic thinking;

· Likelihood to benefit from participation in the Program and to
contribute to global understanding at Yale;

· Commitment to a rigorous program of activities, to full-time
residence at Yale for the entire duration of the program, and to mentoring
students and speaking frequently on campus

If you would like to communicate with me about the program, please email me
directly at

Good luck!

Best regards, Allison
