There has been lots of activity over the past few months.  It was possible because of the contributions of inspired, dedicated, amazing and collegial member volunteers. The Consortium's successes are directly attributable to your invaluable gifts of time and effort.  Heartfelt thanks to each of you!

So, what have we been up to? We’ve created and rolled out our logo, built out the site visitor process, increased the functionality of our website and our presence in social media, established a national Membership Committee, and established a national presence as an accrediting organization.

Accrediting the NP Postgraduate Training Program in Year One

Support for New Program Directors

Over the past several weeks I’ve had a series of very interesting conversations with colleagues who are in the midst of establishing new NP postgraduate residencies. It's a lot to process and manage.  Which leads me to my next thought.  The Consortium has a new accreditation process, Provisional Accreditation, for programs that have completed the planning phase, have admitted their first class, but have yet to graduate a cohort of trainees.  It is explicitly designed to provide support and guidance to program leaders as they work their way through that up-hill climb that is year-1 of implementation.

This last month has been mostly on the road, personally and professionally; most recently visiting with grandchildren ranging in age from 12 months to 7 years.  Seeing how they change month-to-month reminds me of the progress that NNPRFTC is making, almost minute by minute!  There are programs in the accreditation review cycle.   Our logo and seal are nearing completion.  We were invited speakers at a national conference and webinar.  It has been a busy month.
