The National Nurse Practitioner Residency and Fellowship Consortium (NNPRFTC) is pleased to announce the initial accreditation of another postgraduate Nurse Practitioner residency: Highland Family Medicine’s (HFM) Nurse Practitioner Residency Program (NPRP) headquartered in Rochester, NY. NNPRFTC’s Accreditation Commission’s initial programmatic accreditation is for three years. The current trainees will be considered to have completed an accredited program.
The program is clearly poised to meet a need for expert primary care providers in an area that includes both urban and rural under-served populations. Thomas L Campbell, MD and Chair of Highland Family Medicine said it perfectly: “We are so proud of our NP residency and the work that Kristin [Kristin E. Smith, DNP, FNP-c, AAHIVS, Program Director] and her colleagues have done.”
Congratulations Highland Family Medicine Nurse Practitioner Residency Program!
