"The support and continued professional growth offered by the residency program during the often difficult transition from student to provider is priceless. I could not imagine beginning my NP career without it. The organization is welcoming and supportive and the diversity of the patient population provides unique and valuable training opportunities. It has been an outstanding experience I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to be a part of. I wish that all NP’s could have the same supportive start."Stephanie Randall, FNP

“The open door NP residency allowed me to gain confidence taking care of the most complex family medicine patients in a low resource rural practice environment. This program taught me that being a primary care provider is about working as a team at every level to support each other and the patient in achieving their goals of care. The preceptors of this program set the bar for intelligence and compassion, each is dedicated to educating and supporting the next generation of primary care providers”Angelo Alfano, FNP
