Nurse Practitioner Fellowship Program

Nurse Practitioner Fellowship Programs



Thank you for your interest in the first primary care & psychiatric community health nurse practitioner fellowship in New York State. We are so pleased to offer nurse practitioners an opportunity to train and develop advanced skills in the community health setting. Community Healthcare Network has a long history of providing quality, comprehensive services to all New Yorkers and this care starts with an investment in training quality, proficientproviders.

The NP Fellowship has two tracks a primary care fellowship for family nurse practitioners and a psychiatric community health fellowship for psychiatric nurse practitioners.

With a national shortage in primary care providers, a newly insured population seeking care, an increase in complex comorbidities and a national focus on reducing emergency room admissions an opportunity to build upon skills learned in the academic setting is crucial. This full-time program provides a bridge into practice for NP’s and provides preparation for the challenging community health environment. The fellowship is designed to give the academically prepared practitioner an opportunity to spend more time under the guidance of a preceptor.

Thank you,

Elizabeth DuBois, DNP, FNP-BC, AAHIVS Deputy Chief Medical Officer
