Harbor Health Launches Family Nurse Practitioner Residency Program

27th March 2019

Now accepting applications! 

We’re pleased to announce that Harbor Health is now accepting applications for the 2019-2020 Family Nurse Practitioner Residency Training Program!

“The residency program is specifically intended for postgraduate family nurse practitioners who are committed to developing careers as primary care providers in the challenging setting of community health centers and other safety net settings” explains John Roberts DNP, ANP-BC, at Harbor Health.

“We’re proud to be a part of helping new family nurse practitioners develop the skills they need to care for underserved populations and assume future leadership roles in community health care.”

The program includes precepted primary care sessions, specialty rotations, mentored independent clinics in an urban setting, didactic sessions, and quality improvement training.

Harbor will offer two residency slots for this intensive training program.  The FNP residency is a full-time, 12-month salaried position with a one-year employment commitment after completion of the program.

The 2019-2020 program will be based at Harbor’s community health centers in Dorchester and will run September 3, 2019-August 31, 2020.

Harbor Health invites postgraduate family nurse practitioners (FNP) to apply! Bilingual candidates are highly encouraged to apply.

The deadline to submit your application is May 31, 2019.

Supporters and Partners of Harbor’s FNP Residency Program

Harbor is able to offer two residency slots thanks to funding provided by the Massachusetts Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS).

We were one of six healthcare organizations selected to participate in the DSRIP Statewide Investments Family Nurse Practitioner Residency Training Program.  This program is administered by the Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers and funded through the EOHHS.

We have partnered with the Community Health Center, Inc. of Middletown, Connecticut, to develop our residency program. The Community Health Center, Inc. launched the nation’s first formal postgraduate nurse practitioner residency training program in 2007 to support the transition from new NP to primary care provider.
