Hackensack Meridian Health has received a four year, $3.4 million award from the Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA) to launch a comprehensive Nurse Practitioner Residency Program.
Funding under this initiative is geared to both planning for new program development and expanding existing postgraduate Nurse Practitioner Residency Programs.
In partnership with our academic partner, Monmouth University, we will operationalize a rigorous Nurse Practitioner Residency Program in community-based primary care practices in the New Jersey counties of Atlantic, Monmouth, Ocean, Middlesex, and Bergen.
“Our Nurse Practitioner Residency Program will increase and fine tune health care skills through hands-on training with the presence and guidance of trained preceptors. Ten Nurse Practitioners a year in years two to four will participate in 12-month, full-time residency programs, designed to fortify their clinical knowledge and advance their skills to work more effectively with the patients we care for, and enhance our overall capacity to meet the needs of the communities we serve.”
