ICHS ARNP/Family Nurse Practitioner Residency Program

ICHS ARNP/Family Nurse Practitioner Residency Program

Edit-8639-web

Founded in 2014, the ICHS Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) residency provides post-graduate education to strengthen the transition from new nurse practitioner to expert provider. 

Its mission is to educate and retain well-rounded, highly autonomous, effective and culturally-competent FNPs, who will serve as primary care providers in community health settings. The program aims to prepare residents to:

  • Serve as a primary care provider to patients in a complex community health setting
  • Improve cultural competency
  • Develop the tools needed to maximize career satisfaction and growth, while encouraging work-life balance and avoiding burnout
  • Assume leadership roles in community health settings and in driving social change

A five-part curriculum, delivered from top-notch clinicians and educators, includes a ramp up schedule, continual education with weekly didactics and exposure to several clinical specialties. 

The residency is a full-time salaried position with benefits. Residents commit to 13 months of employment at ICHS from September 11, 2023 through October 12, 2024, including 12 months of residency curriculum followed by one month transition to independent practice and overlap with the incoming residency class. Four residency positions are available.

Jinhee Dorsey, ICHS ARNP Resident, 2021-2022

The days have been long the past few weeks, but I actually feel really energized by the learning process. The patients, preceptors, and staff have been so enjoyable. It’s 100,000x better than being an Nurse Practitioner student.
