First Class NPs
In 2016, CHN graduated its inaugural class of the first Nurse Practitioner Fellowship program in New York State. This Fellowship Program has two tracks: one for Family Nurse Practitioners and one for Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners and entails a comprehensive education program including patient visits at CHN centers and rotations across specialty providers in New York City. This program provides recent graduates an opportunity to broaden the scope of educational experiences to include: patient visits with chronic conditions, rotations in inpatient and outpatient specialty areas, didactic presentations in best practices and a clinic for primary care procedures. The goal is to enhance skills, reduce anxiety and retain providers in the challenging community health setting.
