Sea Mar Community Health Centers
Family Nurse Practitioner Residency
Sea Mar Community Health Centers’ Family Nurse Practitioner Residency began at the Seattle Medical Clinic in October of 2015 under the directorship of Patricia Cleveland, ARNP. The residency program strives to further develop the clinical skills, education, and confidence of new nurse practitioners and to prepare them for the complexities and rigors of working within Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs). The program emphasizes interdisciplinary medicine and patient-centered, culturally competent care, with exposure to medically and socially complex patients.
With the incredible support of the Sea Mar organization and surrounding community, Sea Mar’s Family Nurse Practitioner Residency has become a successful and highly-esteemed post-graduate training program. The Family Nurse Practitioner Residency became accredited through the National Nurse Practitioner Residency and Fellowship Training Consortium (NNPRFTC) in July 2018, demonstrating its commitment to high-quality and rigorous post graduate training.
