Congratulations -- CHAS Health's Nurse Practitioner Residency Awarded Pre-Accreditation

First Postgrad NP Residency to Receive NNPRFTC's Pre-Accreditation

Candice Rettie, PhD 0 140

Congratulations! CHAS Health's Nurse Practitioner Residency Program is the first NP postgraduate program to be awarded pre-accreditation by NNPRFTC. CHAS, headquartered in Spokane WA, was awarded pre-accreditation September 27, 2018. Trainees in the class of 2018 are considered to have completed a pre-accredited postgraduate NP training program.  CHAS's class of 2018 finished their program in September, and all went on to full-time employment for agencies serving vulnerable, under-served populations.

Pre-accreditation is a formal designation that has national recognition. For programs in their first year, pre-accreditation provides a pathway that may lead to full accreditation. Programs are eligible to apply for pre-accreditation if they meet the eligibility requirements for accreditation, but their first cohort of trainees is still enrolled at the time of the site visit.  Pre-accreditation may convert to accreditation during the second year if it is determined that the program is meeting outstanding requirements such as end-of-year trainee and faculty evaluations and on-going program evaluation.
