HRHCare is pleased to announce that the application deadline for our Family Nurse Practitioner Residency Training Program has been extended until June 15. This residency program will provide intensive training in both the clinical complexity of family practice in the safety net setting, and training in the Patient Centered Medical Home model for primary care. The year-long residency will incorporate significant rural/migrant health experience, and include a one-year employment commitment. HRHCare has partnered with Community Health Center, Inc. of Middletown, CT to develop this program.
The primary goals of this program include:
- Increase access to quality primary care for underserved and special populations, especially rural communities and migrant workers
- Provide new Family Nurse Practitioners with a depth, breadth, volume and intensity of clinical training necessary to serve as primary care providers in the complex setting of the country’s Federally Qualified Health Centers
- Improve the skills, confidence, productivity, and job satisfaction of new nurse practitioners, specifically in a rural setting
- Increase the number of Nurse Practitioners ready to serve in leadership roles in community health centers
The orientation to the program will include walking tours of local neighborhoods and community-based organizations, HRHCare sites, technical training on the electronic health record, and presentations from senior leadership on the responsibilities and privileges of medical staff participation at HRHCare.
Three residency slots are available for the inaugural 2017-2018 Nurse Practitioner Residency Class. The new application deadline is June 15, 2017, and the residency class begins September 5.
