Clinical Workforce Development

Addressing the Need

Community Health Center, Inc. (CHC) received a National Cooperative Agreement (NCA) to address the most fundamental need of health centers now and for the coming decades: a clinically expert, deeply committed staff representing all roles and disciplines in primary care that is trained to a high performance model of team-based care.  To address this need, CHC continues to support your health center through education, assistance and training.

Implementing Postgraduate Residency Training Programs for Family and Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioners

The Residency Learning Collaborative is designed to help Federally Qualified Health Centers develop postgraduate residency programs for new family nurse practitioners and psychiatric/mental health nurse practitioners who have recently completed their academic program of studies. This 9-month Learning Collaborative will support health centers who are ready to move from the planning stage to implementation. Through our National Cooperative Agreement on Clinical Workforce Pipeline Development, CHC will provide health centers with the tools, resources, and one-to-one support to implement a residency program.
