CFIN New Partnership 

Nurse Practitioners fill shortages

Family Nurse Practitioner Community Care Residency Program

We are excited to announce a partnership with the Community Clinic Association of Los Angeles County (CCALAC) to offer a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) residency for new graduates of accredited FNP programs. FNP is an 8-month program that will involve didactic and hands-on training at Federally Qualified Health Clinics (FQHC’s) in the LA basin beginning in January 2021. While gaining on-the-job experience as a primary care provider, the residents will support the mission of the clinics and increase access to care for underserved clients across the age spectrum.  Applications are open now until October 18 and can be found at the CCALAC website with further details.
