The VA Nursing Academic Partnerships – Graduate Education (VANAP-GE) Nurse Practitioner Residency is an innovative twelve-month residency program at the VA Medical Center in White River Junction, VT.

It employs an interprofessional “clinician-leader-improver” model comprised of three major components: (1) clinical practice; (2) quality improvement science; and (3) leadership. Learning activities include clinical training, mentorship, didactic seminars, applied individual and/or team projects, and online learning activities.
