Oklahoma City VA Medical Center
Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner Residency Program
The Oklahoma City VA Healthcare System (OKC VAHCS) Nurse Practitioner Residency Program is a twelve-month postgraduate primary care training program. By providing intensive clinical experiences supplemented by inter-professional development activities, we prepare new graduate nurse practitioners to deliver high-quality, compassionate, and patient-centered care in a complex primary care population, to function assuming full-practice authority (FPA) as nurse practitioners.
The residency offers new graduates the opportunity to strengthen clinical and scholarly skills as a primary care nurse practitioner. Nurse practitioner residents will collaborate with medicine, pharmacy and psychology residents as members of an interdisciplinary team. Together, they will attend didactics, work on a quality improvement project, and provide care for Veterans using a patient centered approach. Clinical rotations will be within the OKCVAHCS, inclusive of its surrounding Community Based Out-Patient Clinics (CBOCs).
