The School of Nursing Welcomes Its First Cohort of Evelyn Lauder Nurse Practitioner Fellows

Evelyn Lauder Community Care Nurse Practitioner Program

Fellowship for Advanced Clinical Training and Graduate-Level Education

The Hunter-Bellevue School of Nursing is pleased to announce its first cohort of Evelyn Lauder Nurse Practitioner Fellows, created by a $52 million gift from Leonard A. Lauder in honor of his late wife, Evelyn Lauder, a proud Hunter College High School and Hunter College alumna. This game-changing donation is the largest-ever philanthropic gift to a single CUNY school.

The gift expands and strengthens HBSON's graduate-level nurse practitioner programs, preparing nurses for 21st-century practice and advancing health and health equity in New York City.

The program offers advanced clinical training and graduate-level education focused on the critical aspects of care, from diagnosis to ordering and interpreting tests to prescribing medication.

Features of the Lauder Fellows Program

The program is designed to:

  • Ease the financial burden of specialized training and open a direct path to employment through Hunter College's partnerships with NYC Health + Hospitals (H+H);
  • Support Lauder Fellows with up to $30,000 in stipends, applicable toward tuition support or living expenses;
  • Provide rigorous clinical training to Lauder Fellows in an H+H facility under the supervision of expert faculty, empowering graduates with job-ready skills to work in H+H hospitals and clinics.
