Primary Care Nurse Practitioner Residency Program

Academic partner: Oregon Health & Science University, School of Nursing 

The VA Portland Health Care System Primary Care Nurse Practitioner Residency Program is for newly graduated Nurse Practitioners who are interested in a rewarding career caring for our nation’s Veterans and their unique healthcare needs. The NP residency is a 12-month post-graduate, precepted training program within the Primary Care setting with a focus on interdisciplinary collaboration and the development of leadership skills within a dynamic and complex health care setting. Residents will manage a panel of patients alongside a dedicated NP preceptor. In addition to Primary Care, the program includes Specialty, Inpatient and Long-term Care rotations.

The resident will participate in activities including Journal Clubs, Grand Round lectures and Simulation practicums with other interdisciplinary team members. Residents will also complete an evidence-based, quality improvement project focused on the complex needs of the Veteran population.
