Why Postgraduate Advanced Practice Registered Nurse Residency?
Our country faces an unprecedented demand for primary care providers who are trained to organize and deliver care that is timely, safe, effective, affordable and culturally competent.
Integrated primary care is our best strategy to ensure a healthcare home for all Americans, including special populations. Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) are the healthcare home for more than 27 million people in the U.S., and their primary care providers must be specialists in primary care for vulnerable populations.
APRNs are critically important providers in FQHCs but have had to assume their roles in primary care without the benefit of formal post-graduate residency training programs to support the transition from new nurse practitioner to expert provider.
It’s time for a change. As we create our healthcare future, the time for residency training for Family Nurse Practitioners using the nation’s best federally qualified health centers as the service institution base, is now!
