Coldiron Senior Nurse Executive Fellowship

Promoting Excellence in Nurse Leadership

The Coldiron Senior Nurse Executive Fellowship was created by the Marian K. Shaughnessy Nurse Leadership Academy in partnership with the American Nurses Association, The American Organization for Nursing Leadership and the Healthcare Financial Management Association to enhance and expand the development of senior nurse executive leaders.

The Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing and the Coldiron Senior Nurse Executive program are thankful to have the generous scholarship support of the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation.

A Celebration of the Inaugural Coldiron Fellowship

In July 2021, the inaugural class of Coldiron Fellows met with Arnold and Deborah Coldiron, Michael Shaughnessy, and leaders of the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing for a celebratory open house. The event was held during the time where the university had relaxed its COVID-19 face mask wearing requirements for fully vaccinated individuals. Photos by Dan Milner.
