NEW ORLEANS – DePaul Community Health Centers recently launched a postgraduate family nurse practitioner residency training program designed to provide intensive training in both the clinical complexity of family practice in the safety net setting and training in the patient centered medical home model for primary care.

The residency is a 12-month, full-time position with a one-year post-program employment commitment. The deadline to apply is Sept. 1. Four residency slots are available for the inaugural 2023-24 program class.

The primary goals of this program are to increase access to quality primary care and to provide new family nurse practitioners with a depth, breadth, volume and intensity of clinical training.

The program also aims to improve the skills, confidence, productivity, and job satisfaction of new nurse practitioners and to increase the number of nurse practitioners ready to serve in leadership roles in community health centers 

The residency program led by Tanya Theriault is intended for new 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.
