Welcome from Gregory Rys, DNP, FNP-BC, Program Director

Bassett Healthcare Network’s Post-Graduate Family Nurse Practitioner Residency Program provides an integrative training platform to new post-graduate nurse practitioners so they may confidently and proficiently serve as a primary care provider in a complex healthcare arena. The program’s ultimate goal is to help improve health outcomes for our patients and the global health of the communities we serve by expanding access to quality health and wellness services.

Our program is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in our patient care and in how we support each other within our profession.

Please feel free to contact me directly with questions about our program and our community. Both are hidden gems. Each of us in the residency office look forward to getting to know you.
