Atlanta VA Medical Center – Emory University
Primary Care Nurse Practitioner Residency Program
Emory University’s Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing and the Atlanta VA Medical Center (VAMC) are teaming up to prepare nurse practitioners to provide specialized holistic and integrated care for the veteran population. From newly returning veterans of current deployments to World War II survivors and every conflict in between, the focus of the program is to engage excellent practitioners who want to serve those who have served us. The VA Health System is facing a severe primary care shortage, which will intensify due to a wave of health provider retirements, an aging Veteran population with multiple chronic diseases, and continued expansion of the Veteran eligible population due to ongoing global military engagements.
