Nurse Practitioner Post-Graduate Residency Program

About the Program

The WCCHC Nurse Practitioner (NP) Post-Graduate Residency Program began in 2015 to help new family and adult nurse practitioners expand their competency to deliver comprehensive, patient-centered primary care services. The program offers the NP a 12-month, full-time salaried position working directly with specialists and primary care providers to increase their confidence and knowledge in caring for patients – especially those with multiple chronic conditions. In addition to hands-on experience in the clinics, the residents also attend lectures on a variety of subjects that build on their current knowledge of disease processes, treatment options and medications.

This innovative program is just one of the ways WCCHC is successfully addressing provider shortages by “growing their own healers”. All nine residents have accepted full-time permanent positions at WCCHC. (Seven residents have been accepted for the program year beginning August, 2017.)

New Applicants - How to Apply

Applications will be accepted from January 1 – March 1, 2018 for the program year beginning August, 2018.

If you are a recent NP Graduate (within 24 months) and committed to working in an underserved community, we encourage you to consider submitting your application. For more information, please email us at npresidency@wcchc.com
