Nurse Practitioner Residency Program in Family Practice
Nurse Practitioner Residency in Family Practice
The College of Nursing at the University of South Alabama (USA) has been awarded a Federal grant to prepare new Nurse Practitioners (NPs) in primary care for practice in community-based settings through a clinical and academic focused 12-month Nurse Practitioner Residency Program. The Advanced Nursing Education Nurse Practitioner Residency (ANE NPR) Program in partnership with USA Health and Franklin Primary Health Center aims to better meet the needs of primary care providers serving populations in rural and underrepresented communities.
This program is open to recent graduates with a Master of Science in Nursing degree who are interested in obtaining additional training and the tools needed to provide high-quality patient care in rural and underserved communities. Individuals who completed their Family Nurse Practitioner specialty within the past 18 months and are committed to developing career practices in challenging community-based settings are encouraged to apply.
Alabama Licensure and Board of Certification as a Family Nurse Practitioner are required prior to the start of the program in July 2022.
