Highland Family Medicine Nurse Practitioner Residency Program Accredited

Congratulations on Initial Accreditation

Candice Rettie, PhD 0 87

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!

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

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

Candice Rettie, PhD 0 477

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.
