The meeting will bring together a community of innovators and practitioners as well as tomorrow’s leaders, including NP students and current postgraduate trainees to learn from each other.  The conference will provide an intense burst of continuing education on the evolving best practices in postgraduate training, strategies for program planning and implementation, current and future policy developments, and health care trends related to the postgraduate training movement. Thought-provoking plenary sessions and pragmatically focused breakout sessions will provide attendees with cutting edge initiatives, possibilities for the future, practical advice, and dialogue on NP postgraduate training and NPs contributions to excellence in healthcare.  We are finalizing our list of plenary speakers and breakout session presenters.  Check out the program agenda.

We implemented a hospitalist residency program approximately 2 years ago and have seen the success from doing this.

This first program would be the template for initiating other residency programs in our different specialties and departments.

This consortium is a wonderful platform to further this well needed educational foundation.

Hi Cecelia,

So glad that you are an active participant in the Consortium -- hearing about programs like yours, how you make it work and how you keep creating best practices is invaluable. Best, Candice

Will there be video, audio or literature available from the conference for people who were not able to attend regarding best practices, recommendations and pitfalls to avoid in setting up and maintaining a residency program?

Hi Barbara, Hope that you can join us for our next conference. We plan to post selected materials from the First Annual Conference. In the mean time, I recommend that you download the digital book produced by CHC, Inc as a work product from their HRSA National Cooperative Agreement Learning Collaborative that provided guidance to Federally Qualified Health Centers who were designing new postgraduate NP training programs. The book is entitled: Training the Next Generation: Residency and Fellowship Training for Nurse Practitioners in Community Health Centers.

Here is the link -- https://www.weitzmaninstitute.org/npresidencybook

Best wishes, Candice
