Our Program

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.

Residents are hired as 40 hour per week employees with full-time benefits that include salary, sick, vacation, personal time, health insurance, FSA, and a retirement plan. There is also loan repayment opportunity post-graduation if hired. Residents accepted to the program will be awarded a clinical portfolio upon successful completion of the residency.

Program Goals

Bassett’s Post-Graduate Family Nurse Practitioner Residency Program aims to:

  • Train new post-graduate nurse practitioner residents to master the principles of primary care consistent with medical home principles that are team-based, comprehensive, patient-centered, coordinated, accessible, high quality, and safe.
  • Increase the overall confidence and professional job satisfaction of new post-graduate nurse practitioners who are committed to working in underserved rural community settings.
  • Cultivate the leadership qualities and potential of nurse practitioners to engage in leadership roles and activities both within their practice setting as well as in the local, state, and federal communities with which they are engaged.
