Our Residency Programs

America's First Family Nurse Practitioner Residency Training Program

In 2007, the Community Health Center, Inc., headquartered in Middletown, CT launched the first-in-the-nation formal Nurse Practitioner Residency Training Program, to support the transition from new NP to primary care provider.

The goal is to provide new nurse practitioners with a depth, breadth, volume, and intensity of clinical training necessary to serve as primary care providers in the complex setting of the country's FQHCs.

The 2015-2016 class is the 10th class accepted into the program. Our residents have come from: Alabama, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, Washington D.C., United Kingdom, and Vancouver, BC, Canada.
